Wanted: More Nutrition Data on Food Labels


The following article is from the NAFB News Service:

A survey released Thursday shows that the number of Americans who desire more information on nutrition labels is on the rise – but confidence in the safety of U.S. food has not changed. According to the survey – 24-percent of those surveyed would prefer more information on labels – up from 18-percent in a survey of consumer perceptions of food technology in 2010. Among the information they’d like to see – nutrition, ingredients and potential allergens and their side effects. Sixty-nine percent were very or somewhat confident in food safety.

Bloomberg reports 750 consumers over the age of 18 were interviewed from March 7th through the 19th for this survey – just as the first major media reports on Lean Finely Textured Beef – dubbed pink slime – were published.
