Butter vs margarine: Which is the healthiest option? What research has to say

The NHS advises: “You do not have control over the amount of salt, sugar and fat in processed foods but you do have control over what you choose to buy.

UK food labels are highlighted in green, amber and red for different nutritional properties.

Foods with red on food labels are unhealthy, whether they are high in fat, saturated fat, salt or sugar.
