The Dutch consumers’ association Consumentenbond has urged the food safety authority NVWA to get tough on misleading claims made by food manufacturers.
Claims on packaging such as ‘rich in fibre’, ‘low fat’ and ‘rich in vitamin C’ mislead shoppers into thinking products are more healthy than other similar ones, the association says in Tuesday’s Trouw.
‘The law is clear. Information on labels may not mislead, so they should not suggest that one product is more healthy than another similar one,’ Consumentenbond director Bart Combée said in a statement.
In particular, the association is angered by claims which lead consumers to believe that unhealthy products are good for you. These include adding ‘with vitamin B’ to a label on sweets or describing potato-based snacks as ‘a source of fibre’, Trouw says.
Among the products singled out for Consumentenbond derision are Sourcy Vitamin water. ‘Water is good for you but “vitamin water” is not water at all,’ the association says. ‘It is a soft drink with water, sugar, colouring, flavouring and yes, a few vitamins for fun.’
Normal good health is turning to simple physics for some of the simplest things. New kinds of foods are being grown with new physics, not chemistry. These will be physic-foods [Kryon name] that are not genetically altered or chemically altered, but benevolently enhanced by physics! This causes a new kind of super growth that can feed the planet in a way it's never been fed before. It will create food that is resistant to absolutely everything - insects, bacteria and disease - all through physics. Who thought of that? What you're expecting in the future regarding health is based upon the past. The big filter of past knowledge keeps you from thinking out of the box. You don't know what you don't know. ….”
