Depends on what kind of label..

I look for different things in different products. Example, I wouldn't look for protein on a fish oil label. That may sound a bit obvious, but that's the basic idea.

What products are you thinking of?

Anything over 80 proof

I check for total carb vs fiber & sugar
Fat break down

Ingredient wise: non-natural ingredients like MSG of HFCS. I won't buy much anything with extra starches or sugars added.
