Implementing an effective clean label strategy for food supplements

In recent years, consumers have started to pay greater attention to what is in their food, where it comes from and how it is made. Their scrutiny is increasingly being extended to the food supplements arena as more consumers begin to take supplements as part of their regular regimens

As this culture of “label scrutiny” emerges, the food supplement industry is responding by launching a variety of new products featuring clean label claims, which highlight their vegetal origin and “free-from” ingredients.
