Labeling Practices

Sorting It All Out

Clean label products usually are free from additives, preservatives and GMOs (genetically modified organisms). 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.
