How trustworthy are the labels on food products that list the calories, fat, protein, and so on?

Unless you wanna bust your brain in conspiracy theories on every corner, :D do read and trust your usual nutritional labels. Besides you can check it out with hundreds of other food indexes online - like the food database on bb.com , fitday.com , thedailyplate.com or just google "foods nutritional values index".

Not very but they have to be within 10% (maybe more) of what the label states. This may vary from country to country but is the case in the UK.
