What does 100% Natural mean?
Natural does not mean organic, but the stamp food manufacturers use often resembles the organic green stamp and it can be misleading. Labels can be confusing and the use of the word “natural” on foods is oftentimes more for advertising than saying anything about the health benefits of the food. These foods are NOT organic and can contain GMO’s. Consumers can be falsely convinced they are buying a “healthy” alternative.
The official natural stamp applies only to meat, chicken and eggs, not other fresh or packaged foods and it is defined as no artificial ingredients or added colors in the fore mentioned foods.
Bottom Line: Don’t be fooled by advertising. If you want to know what you are eating, read the ingredient section. Ingredients will tell you the good, bad and the ugly.
