in ../app/views/products/_form.html.erb

there are few lines

  <div class="actions">
     <%= f.submit %>
  </div>

after clicking a new_product_path, it goes to new.html.erb

<%= render 'form' %>
<%= link_to 'Back', products_path %>

How come the form shows "Create Products" in the submit button?

where is the "Create Products" coming from?

thanks

it depends on the @product object you provided to
  <%= form_for(@product, ...

if the @product is still a new record, the form builder is smart enough to say "Create Product",
if the @product is an existing record, it will say "Update Product" 

you can refer to Rails doc, or check their source code:

I believe if you say f.submit "save" it will use that as the button text.

You can also control there text using your locale yaml files. Which is normally my approach since having to use multiple languages.

You can change any of the labels for models using an existing path set by rails.
