An easy way to see if a product is high fat (>20%) or low fat (<20%), is as follows: Multiply the fat calories by 5 then compare to the total calories. If the fat calories times 5 is greater than the total calories, then you have a high fat food. If the fat calories times 5 is less than the total calories then you have a low fat food. Easy!

Here are a few examples.

Product A:
Total calories: 400, Fat calories 50
Ok multiply the fat calories by 5... 50 * 5 = 250
250 is much less than 400 so this is a low fat food. Enjoy!

Product B:
Total calories: 120, Fat calories 30
Once again... 30 * 5 = 150
150 is greater than 120 so this is a high fat food. Avoid!

Product C:
Total calories: 200, Fat calories 40
We multiply... 40 * 5 = 200
Well 200 equals 200 so this food is exactly 20% fat. You decide!

Happy multiplying!
