A vegan burger with a Nutri-Score?
The abundance of different foods and their sometimes very complex lists of ingredients present the consumer with a great challenge, because the assessment of whether a food is good or bad is in the eye of the beholder. With the help of the Nutri-Score there is now a possibility to make the evaluation of a food or drink more transparent again.
The Nutri-Score is based on a 5-step letter scale, which is also highlighted with colors and is displayed as a nutritional label on the front of the product packaging. In addition to the energy content, fewer positive nutrients such as sugar, saturated fatty acids and sodium as well as positive ingredients such as fiber and proteins are evaluated per 100 grams or 100 milliliters.The products are classified on the scale from A (positive nutrients) to E (less positive nutrients) and are also highlighted in color depending on the letter (A is highlighted with dark green, E, on the other hand, with red). This enables the consumer to evaluate the nutritional profile of a food or drink at a glance.
Contrary to the one-sided view of current trends such as fat and carbohydrate reduction, the Nutri-Score also evaluates the quality of fats and carbohydrates. Products with a high protein content are no longer rated as generally positive, but the protein content has a positive effect in relation to the overall product and possibly improves the Nutri-Score.In order to show you all the options within your products, we will be happy to advise you.
