How do you know whether or not what you are eating is healthy for you? Food packaging can be quite confusing and misleading. Manufacturers of food use the words “natural” and “healthy” to coax you into buying their product. Unfortunately these words or the pictures on the packages of food are marketing ploys to get you to buy their product but their claims are often not validated or even true.
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.
