1 Nutritional Glossary This glossary provides nutrition information about the nutrients commonly found in fruits, vegetables, and other plant foods Each glossary definition has a long and a short version. Each version can stand alone as an accurate description of a nutrient.. The Nutrition Glossary is available as an educational tool on the Network s Communications Resource Library at Organization of the Definitions: An alphabetized Index of Contents is available below to show readers what the glossary includes. The glossary terms are then organized into three categories general nutrient information, vitamins, and minerals as a way to further educate readers about the classifications of each term. Literacy Level: The champion foods section is an alphabetical list of foods that are good or excellent natural sources of the nutrient being described. A food that is a good source of a nutrient has percent of the recommended daily value of the nutrient per half cup portion. A food that is an excellent source of a nutrient has 20 or more percent of the recommended daily value of the nutrient per half cup portion. Exceptions to this rule are the champion foods for folate and thiamin, as plant sources for these nutrients are often fortified. The champion foods list is not all-inclusive but meant to give a quick example of the variety of common foods that provide various health benefits as part of a balanced diet. The champion foods list for water is not alphabetical as the obvious best source for water is water.

Everyone needs nutrients from food, but different amounts are needed depending on a person s age, gender, and physical activity level.

Both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are found in plants, nuts, and fish. Saturated and trans fats are solid fats that raise the bad (LDL) cholesterol. Trans fats also lower the good (HDL) cholesterol levels.
