Defining “healthy”

Food labeling has been the subject of discussion and debate in recent years. More recently, the word “healthy” has come under scrutiny. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is in the process of redefining what qualifies as “healthy” in the labeling of food products.

More than a third of consumers surveyed said a healthy food is defined in part by what it does not contain, rather than what it does contain.
