Nutrition Facts labels now appear on most foods. An abbreviated label concerned with fat is shown in Fig. 1.20. When burned in the body, each gram of fat supplies 9 Calories. (A food Calorie is really a kilocalorie, as will be learned in Chapter 11.)
(a) What percentage of the Calories in one serving is supplied by fat?
(b) You may notice that our answer doesn’t agree with the listed Total Fat percentage in Fig. 1.20. This is because the given Percent Daily Values are the percent-ages of the maximum recommended amounts of nutrients (in grams) contained in a 2000- Calorie diet. What are the maximum recommended amounts of total fat and saturated fat for a 2000- Calorie diet?
