Nutritional Information Guide

Healthy eating with LIDL

Eating is more than just the intake of food. If we have a varied diet, eating is about enjoyment and joie de vivre. In addition, a healthy diet can make an important contribution to your well-being, health and fitness. You probably often ask yourself which products you can enjoy without feeling guilty. With the help of our Nutritional Information Guide you can gain an overview of your eating habits and eat with more awareness. The proportion of essential foodstuffs as well as the proportion of fat and sugar are highlighted in this guide.

LIDL Nutritional Information Guide – clear and informative

We want to make your shopping as easy and transparent as possible. Therefore in the coming months, many LIDL own brand food products will include precise details of nutritional values and calories. A table on the packaging shows you at a glance how much energy and which quantity of selected nutrients it contains – expressed in each case as a percentage of the recommended daily allowance for an adult. This will make shopping at LIDL easier and help you to eat more healthily. The diagram on the front shows you 5 important pieces of nutritional information for the product. This includes the number of calories, the amount of sugar, fat, and saturated fats and the salt content.

On smaller packaging the nutritional information is correspondingly displayed in a more basic format. In this case the number of calories and the proportion of your recommended daily allowance per portion is displayed.

You will find a detailed nutritional information guide on the side or the back of the product packaging.

1. Nutrition Information

2. Typical values per 100g of the foodstuff

3. Typical values per portion (e.g. slice) of the product.

4. GDA: Guideline Daily Amount per portion

The Guideline Daily Amount (GDA) is based on the recommendations of an international scientific committee (CIAA – Confederation of the Food and Drink Industries in the EU) and refers to the daily requirement of a middle-aged woman with an average amount of physical activity. The daily requirement of the individual varies according to gender, age and physical activity. For example, men often need more calories and nutrients than women.

On smaller packaging the nutritional information is correspondingly displayed in a more basic format. Usually the seven most important ingredients as well as the energy amount are declared.
