Many supermarkets are using traffic light indicators on their packaging to help you make informed choices about healthy eating. These use the simple red, amber and green system to show whether the food has high, medium or low amounts of fat, saturated fat, sugars and salt. The ‘traffic lights’ below have been created for the most popular shellfish in the UK and demonstrate how a portion of shellfish (100g) can contribute to a healthy diet. Shellfish Association of Great Britain The Shellfish Association of Great Britain is a trade association which assists and promotes the sustainable development of the Shellfish Industry in the United Kingdom. www.shellfish.org.uk From sea to plate, Seafish delivers expert knowledge, skills and support which help the UK seafood industry secure a sustainable and profitable future. www.seafish.org The Food Standards Agency have set criteria that define the boundaries for these nutrients in 100g of food. The percentage figures are calculated from the Guideline Daily Amounts (GDA) for a typical female adult. GDAs are guideline and personal requirements vary depending on age, gender, weight and activity. Green (Low) Amber (Medium) Red (High) Fat ≤ 3.0 g > 3.0 to ≤ 20.0 g > 20.0 g Saturates ≤ 1.5 g > 1.5 to ≤ 5.0 g > 5.0 g Sugars ≤ 5.0 g > 5.0 to ≤ 12.5g > 12.5g Salt ≤ 0.30 g > 0.30 to ≤ 1.50g > 1.50 g
