Yet too much which is positioned and packaged as "healthy eating" is not labeled.
Take those hot roasted chickens which supermarkets now feature, often as loss leaders, to transmit a message: We are committed to your health. But, in here in Tucson, Arizona, in Fry's and in Wal-Mart, those roasters are not labeled. There are no data for each serving of calories, fat, carbs, and so on. What might be believed to be so nutritionally beneficial may not be.
For example, before I relocated from New Haven, Connecticut, my eyes popped when, at that Wal-Mart, the roasters were labeled. The fat content for each serving was much higher than the limit my medical doctor had "prescribed" for me. I got it: Verboten, if I wanted to protect my heart. In addition, the calorie count was also not aligned with what I was supposed to stick to for weight loss. In addition, it might have been useful to newbies in checking labels if there had been a different set of numbers for roasters consumed with the skin and without the skin.
As a gesture of authentically caring about consumers, food businesses should go beyond the letter of any local, state, and federal law to the spirit. That ethos demands accounting for what is really in the product, right down to the options of eating it with or without the skin.
