This information is given in a standardised format that will allow you to easily compare the amount of energy, protein, carbohydrate and fat in different products. The information is given per 100g/ml of product and is also given per typical serving. Each brand may decide to supply additional nutritional information such as the amount of fiber, sodium, sugars and saturated fatty acids.
