What do you think when you read NATURAL on your products
What do you think when you read NATURAL on your products??
I would assume it’s healthy,
with nothing added,
no chemicals used,
Natural to me means it wasn’t manipulated or altered from its original state
Real Whole Food
Safe…..Right……What do you think??
Well that’s not the case!!!!!
For of us who are trying to be healthy, I think you need to know about Labels put on our products. As a consumer I feel strongly that I want to know what I’m buying, without the companies trying to mislead me, DISHONEST MUCH!!
“FDA has not developed a definition for use of the term natural or its derivatives. However, the agency has not objected to the use of the term if the food does not contain added color, artificial flavors, or synthetic substances.”
The FDA was petitioned from citizens wanting this subject of “Natural” to be looked at. This is what they’ve said: “this policy was not intended to address food production methods, such as the use of pesticides, nor did it explicitly address food processing or manufacturing methods, such as thermal technologies, pasteurization, or irradiation. The FDA also did not consider whether the term “natural” should describe any nutritional or other health benefit.”
Goes to show yet again that we need to be aware of the companies standards and quality control more then judging based on FDA guidelines.
