Do the nutritional facts on the outside of a package reflect the ENTIRE contents of the package or just what it is assumed a consumer would eat? For example: a jar of pickles (or pickled eggs) -- do the nutritional facts include the vinegar and brine the pickles (eggs) swim in?
They reflect what is listed as a serving size. If a serving lists one pickle - then that's what the nutritional info reflects. If it lists pickle + 1 oz juice (there's no way it does), then it would reflect that.
