A Close Look At Meaningful – And Meaningless – Food Labels

January 28, 2010: 10:44 PM EST
An article in Wallet Pop explains various common food labels, including such regulated terms as “organic” and “extra lean,” but also largely vague and meaningless terms as “kid approved” and “made with natural goodness.” Misleading food labels are common, some are fairly new, and U.S. regulators like the FDA and USDA haven’t kept up. For example, says an expert at a consumer watchdog group, many products tout claims to strengthen the immune system and ward off disease, and “all of them are false.” Other misleading terms include “made with whole grains” and “made with real fruit.”
