Front of pack labeling: Nutri-Score
Since I’ve figured out how to enbed videos, you might want to take a look at this one.
This one is about Nutri-Score, a front-of-package labeling system that started in France but is used in several European countries. The system balances the healthful and unhealthful aspects of processed foods, and assigns a composite color-coded score, from A (very healthy) to E (oops), and from green to red.
Once you know how the system works, you can easily figure out which ultra-processed foods are best avoided.
