More and more people are choosing to eat healthy nowadays. Low-fat, sugar free, organic, all-natural – the list goes on. With all these labels and claims, eating right has become confusing. Everybody wants to be healthy, but it is getting more and more tricky for customers to find which food are really healthy and which ones are not. Golden Valley Natural jerky for example, is 100% all-natural, nitrite free and MSG free and contains no artificial flavoring. Do all these claims really mean it is healthier?
Around 64% of customers are influenced by healthy food products, according to the Institute of Food Technologists. And eight out of 10 adults have made some effort to eat healthier within the last year. But with so many options and so little time, it’s hard to tell what’s actually good for you and what’s just a health fad.
