Food companies want to sell their products and marketers have figured out a few ways to trick you into buying their food. It’s not all based on deception though. If I were selling nutrient dense kale that has 50% more vitamin C than ordinary kale, I would advertise that fact and you would probably appreciate knowing it. But there are other ways to promote “truths” about a product that might make it appear much more healthy than it really is. And in some cases, you can be fooled into buying a fattening and harmful food all the wile thinking you were doing something good for your body (and waist line).
In this podcast, we will discuss ten common food claims that should make you think twice before buying. A couple of them might really surprise you!
“Low-fat or fat-free”
“All natural” or “Natural flavors”
“Fortified” or “high in…….”
