Maple Leaf Foods Labels

February 7, 2012 by staff 

Maple Leaf Foods Labels, A number of food companies offer supposed health benefits that don’t check out with nutrition and medical experts, including a product line from Maple Leaf Foods, a CBC Marketplace investigation has revealed.

Consumers are often interested in healthier alternatives – based largely on the packaging displayed in the grocery store – and are willing to pay extra for it.

Companies make reference to natural ingredients, the presence of vitamins or minerals and or the absence of substances that are linked to certain diseases.

Others suggest consumers will become smarter or healthier, including providing a nutritional or immunity boost, as a result of using the products.

Christie Harkin, a mother of two teenaged children, looks for deli meat that doesn’t contain nitrites, a preservative that may be linked to cancer according to a number of organizations, including the Canadian Cancer Society and World Cancer Research Fund.

“If I see something that has no nitrites in it, I’m more inclined to take that than the one that isn’t advertising that,” she said.

Maple Leaf Foods, which offers a line of deli meats under its Natural Selections line with “no added preservatives,” is one such product.

The packaging does include a reference to cultured celery extract.
