LIVING

Development as an important

strategy to tackle nutrition-related

diseases, because it helps consumers

make informed decisions on the

healthiness of their purchases.

Implementation of front-of-pack

labelling was first proposed to the

French Minister of Health in 2014,

it was incorporated-in principle-

in the Health Law of 2016. The

selection of the final graphical

format for front-of-pack labelling

was controversial and prolonged,

involving multiple stakeholders in

a consultation process in which

scientific evidence finally prevailed.

Studies of the nutrient profiling

system underlying the Nutri-Score,

and comparative studies of the

perception, understanding, and use

of various strategies of front-of-pack

labelling, done between 2014 and

2017 concluded that the Nutri-Score

was superior to other formats."

According to a report from The

Times, "Campaigners are calling

for adverts for junk food and

confectionery to carry French-style

health warnings, after Scottish

research found that marketing led up

to a quarter of children to consider

such products to be good for them.

A new paper examining the influence

that visual marketing for foods high

in fat, salt and sugar has on children

found that busy, entertaining adverts

can make a brand appear healthy.

In response, the National Obesity

Forum called for the UK to adopt

France's Nutri-score system, arguing

it is "quite superior" to the traffic

light food labelling used in the UK.

Research fellow at Stirling

University, Dr Nathan Critchlow

advocates for the Nutri-Score, as "a

good example of simple and clear

presentation". Similarly, Tam Fry,

of the National Obesity Forum, has

described research into the benefits

of the Nutri-Score as "excellent" and

said the UK should have implemented

Nutri-score over a decade ago.

For the record

Food labelling will doubtless continue

to be contentious. To a great extent,

it's actually political as much as its

informative, or even truthful. Each

system used has its pros and cons. As

someone with diabetes, having a low

blood glucose, you might then find

that something labelled red is just

what you need to raise your blood

glucose, so those items do have

their place. One of the more obvious

downsides, argued by many products

that have been made the same way

for centuries - cheese being a great

example, is that labelling an item

'bad' or unhealthy can be a nonsense,

if the item is likely to be eaten in

small amounts which are arguably

good for you. A small shaving of

parmesan on your pasta anyone?

The healthy grains brand Quinola

is opting instead to use the

Nutri-Score on their re-branded

Quinoa Grains range and will be

one of the first companies to do

so in the UK. In re-branding their

grains range Quinola believe the

Nutri-Score is the best on-pack

indication of health benefits, as

part of the company's mission to

Make Eating Right, Easy. Grown

organically and Fairtrade certified,

the grains in Quinola packs are

Peru's finest and where

Quinola ensures

farmers receive

a minimum

price for their

quinoa, which

acts like a

minimum wage

for small-hold

farmers that are

usually exposed

to unfettered

market prices.

Serving suggestion -

curry with red quinoa.
