Just about every packaged food made in the U.S. has a food label indicating serving size, sugar content, and other nutritional information.
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”, Hippocrates
(Ancient Greek Physician, who is considered the father of western medicine, established medicine as a profession and the founder of the Hippocratic School of Medicine.)
