Four Ways Foods Claim to Be ‘Healthy’

  • PREVIEW
  • READ ARTICLE

ISSN

Foods claim to be healthy either by focusing on the positive or the negative, or  by claiming to have
scientifically improved the food or to have preserved its natural properties. As a result, there are four ways to claim that a food is healthy:  by adding something positive,  by removing something negative,  by not adding something negative or  by not removing something positive. The types of claim found on the front of the packages of breakfast cereals are totally unrelated to the actual nutritional quality of their contents. Nevertheless, the means whereby breakfast cereals claim be healthy significantly influences people’s  expectations of how healthy, tasty and fattening they are. Regulators and marketers need to examine how  people interpret food claims, not just whether the claims are factually correct.
