NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine -

Top 10 Food Label Tricks to Avoid in 2012

Posted By


My friend and former co-worker Robert Davis today releases his new book, Coffee Is Good for You: From Vitamin C and Organic Foods to Low-Carb and Detox Diets, the Truth about Diet and Nutrition Claims (available in bookstores and online).


In concert with that release, he has posted his list of the most deceptive food labels.  Read the post, but here’s the list:

  • No Trans Fat
  • Multigrain
  • All Natural
  • Organic
  • High in Fiber
  • No High-Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Contains Sea Salt
  • Supports a Healthy Immune System (my personal favorite)
  • Excellent Source of Omega-3
  • Serving Size
