Food labels can be daunting in a world where many people need to make dietary adjustments or are concerned about additives and chemicals in food. In addition, food is often labelled in a way that may be confusing or misleading, such as a product being labelled as “Natural.” Consumers will benefit from the GALE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF NUTRITION AND FOOD LABELS, which explains the often confusing (and sometimes contradictory) language and measurements on food labels and in food marketing, and provides information in a more reader-friendly way than an FDA report can. This product will help consumers understand what labels and ingredients mean to their overall nutritional and food-safety needs. It will also address new FDA labelling guidelines that are under discussion and slated for implementation in the near future. Tables and charts of acceptable levels of many food additives, chemicals, and nutritional levels in foods will add value to this product.
