With obesity rampant in the United States, and food allergies growing, consumers are increasingly concerned about the ingredients within the foods they eat. The situation worsens each year.

Consumers don’t know where to turn. Medical professionals, dieticians and nutritionists can help, but they are frequently not consulted until illness strikes or major adverse food reactions become apparent.

The key, according to industry professionals, is for consumers to become proactive. Objective resources and tools are needed to assist consumers in making the right choices.

Enter FoodFacts.Com, a website dedicated to providing the health and nutrition-minded consumer with trusted and objective information about the ingredients – and the ingredients within the ingredients – that comprise the foods we eat.
