Packaged Foods - Cliona Ni Mhurchu

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:14 pm on 13 April 2015

Packaged foods may be even less healthy than you thought. A new study has found that fewer than half of all packaged foods were healthy enough to actually carry a health claim. The researchers scored more than 23,000 packaged foods and non-alcoholic drinks sold in New Zealand and Australia in 2012. The leader of the study is Professor Cliona Ni Mhurchu from the National Institute for Health Innovation at the University of Auckland.
