Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The other articles in this supplement to the Journal presented the science behind 4 nutrient profiling systems currently available in the US marketplace that cross manufacturers and apply to multiple food categories and have considered their value as tools to promote positive behavior change in American consumers. This article discusses these nutrient profiling systems in terms of the consumer's understanding of science, familiarity with label messaging, and potential to facilitate healthy food decisions.
