You’ve just taken the plunge into the healthy eating world, and needless to say you’re a bit confused. You only expected fulfilling products that tasted healthy on the first bite. And while what you got was indeed that, there’s a bit more info attached to the packaging.
Non-GMO, gluten free, vegan or vegetarian friendly, sugar-free, GMP—the list is endless! And it’s all flying over your head.
Don’t fret, though! We’ve got you covered!
Here’s What All the Buzzwords Mean
GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organisms. Meant to signify that the ingredients used in those products had their genetic material altered or manipulated in the lab, GMO products are marketed as the safer choice. However, what most reports on food safety fail to mention is that certain GMO products like soybean and corn are often sprayed with pesticides, which are transferred to consumers. Not a good thing to have on your dinner plate!
l Gluten Free
Originally, it was just the 1 percent population in America with Celiac disease that had to avoid gluten so as to not trigger their allergy. However, as time went on, studies began to show how gluten-free products not only kept inflammation down, but also helped with weight loss. This is what caused most people to cut away the refined, ultra-processed food from their diets, and eventually led to more companies making their products gluten-free.
l Vegan or Vegetarian Friendly
According to a paper on the estimation of vegetarians in the world, there are around 1.45 billion practicing vegetarians in the world, with another 75 million practicing by choice. That makes around 21.8 percent of the global population.
Vegans (not to be confused for vegetarians) now make up 6 percent of the US population. Clearly, with the population slowly becoming more aware of a healthier lifestyle, it stands to reason that companies should do their best in providing such practitioners with supplements that aren’t just free of animal products like meat, but all animal-related products as well.
Having a sugar-free diet is not just limited to patients with diabetes, cancer and heart disease. Studies show how maintaining a sugar-free diet can not only lower risk of illness, it can also control hunger and food cravings, enhance your mental clarity, increase your energy levels and help you control your weight.
GMP stands for Good Manufacturing Practices, which basically entail that the company manufacturing said product followed guidelines that were recommended by agencies to control product quality. With so much focus on healthy food, companies are taking extra care to assure clients that they’re doing their best to maintain product quality.
