Changing Candy Labels May Be A Priority For The Food And Drug Administration!

April 10, 2013

Obesity has become an epidemic in the United States and individuals, companies and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have been searching for ways to change these statistics.

One way that the food industry has started to change is by adding nutritional facts to the front of their packaging. Some have even gone as far as adding color-coated labels to their products to help consumers better understand if the products they are purchasing are healthy or not.

But, some industries such as the candy industry have started to capitalize on the fact that the labels they’ve added to the front of their packaging happen to be green. Consumers are falling victim when they give in to their sweet tooth temptations by choosing candy bars with green labels.

Most of these candy bars contain the same amount of calories as candy bars with red labels or white labels.

As the FDA struggles to find a uniform solution for front of package labeling, it’s not only about the layout of the nutrition labels but also the color.

Have you bought a candy bar because the label was green? Do you think creating a universal labeling system for food is going to help fight obesity? Share your thoughts on our Facebook and Twitter pages!
