Sorting It All Out

labelClean label products usually are free from additives, preservatives and GMOs. The number of new clean label products in the U.S. has increased 235% from 2005 to 2015.

Twenty-five percent of consumers seek gluten-free products, a category that grew 136% between 2013 and 2015. Three out of four think organic confers health benefits. GMO-free claims were used on 14% of new food and beverage launches in the U.S. in 2015. “No additives or preservatives” is the most commonly used clean label claim, but “organic” and “non-GMO” are the fastest growing.
