Answer the following questions while analyzing the Nutrition Labels:
Reflect and Synthesize
1. I learned that the same measurement can be so different. 17g of sugar is kind of a lot but nothing compared to lots of sodas. But 17g of fat is a lot that could be almost half of your fat intake for a day!
2. Tomato soup not counting what ever the "Natural Flavors" that are claimed to be in the soup nothing in it is from an animal.
3.The tomatoes came from a (tomato) plant
4. The pet and human food labels were organized differently the pet food had the ingredients at the top. But the human food had ingredients at the very bottom. I think it is organized this way because we want to pick food with good ingredients. Humans don't care what chemicals there food has they just want to know how much fat, cholesterol, protein, etc. their is.
5. I saw a squirrel on our nature walk and they eat acorns. I think that squirrels get energy from the calories, they get a healthy amount of fat, some potassium, a tiny bit of fiber, and some carbohydrates.
1. Food provides animals with energy and matter. Energy helps the animals do work and matter is what makes it grow.
2. The pet food and human food have some of the same nutrients because they both need certain nutrients. Humans and pets might also need some nutrient the other one doesn't.
3. Pet food having more calories isn't necessarily always the best option. A higher calorie count means more energy so pet owners may think that they should find a high calorie food so they can provide their pets with lots of energy.
4.The matter in food is what helps us grow and repair our muscles. Matter is to our body as bricks are to houses matter is what takes up space and makes up our bodies.
5. The energy in our food keeps us warm. Energy makes us warm as a bi product of the energy.
6.When energy enters an animal it can transfer into growth, warmth, motion, or body repair. So the energy we take in can help us grow, stay warm, repair damaged muscles, and help us move, think and any work our body has to do.
7. In the milk below there are 160 calories worth of energy. To find how much energy is in something you must burn it one calorie is a kilogram of water heated at 1 degree Celsius you use this formula to find the total amount of energy which we then call calories.
8. The matter in milk is calcium. Milk has 30% of your daily calcium in it so 1 cup of milk gives you a good amount of matter to grow.
