Does natural = healthy?
I often find myself rolling my eyes at claims like “natural”, “gluten free”, and “cage free”. What do these things mean? Does it mean the product is better for me than the one next to it without such a claim? Maybe…but it often requires some reading and perhaps some homework to discern the truth. This post has a bit of the background of food labelling in the United States, an overview of some of the more common labels (and commonly confusing) as well as links to resources to find more information.
