Natural

Natural

The term is not formally defined by the Food and Drug Administration. But, the government agency doesn't object to the use of the term if the food does not contain added color, artificial flavors, or synthetic substances.

Natural does not mean organic or healthy. So, always read the ingredient list to really know what's in a food.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

Grass-fed does not mean that the cattle's feed is organic, or that they aren’t given hormones or antibiotics

“Gluten-free” does not indicate that a food is whole grain, organic, low carb, or healthy. In fact, many gluten-free foods are highly processed and include ingredients like refined white rice, sugar, and salt.

There is no formal national definition for the term local. What local does not mean is organic or more nutritious, which is something many believe.

The term organic doesn't necessarily mean healthy, as evidenced by organic candies and baked goods. Once again, when buying packaged food, the real litmus test is the ingredient list.
