Food Items Labeled "Light"

Food Label Glossary

In order to call a food item "light" or "lite," if 50% or more of the calories are from fat, fat must be reduced by at least 50% per serving. If less than 50% of calories are from fat, fat must be reduced at least 50% or calories reduced at least one-third per serving. "Light" or "Lite" meals or main dish products must meet definitions for "low calorie" or "low fat" meals and labeled to indicate which definition is met.
