The truth behind some common, confusing food terms

(BPT) - Organic, GMO-free, local, hormone-free and antibiotic-free: So many terms are attached to our food these days that it can be difficult to know what they really mean. Worldwide, 62 percent of consumers say they care about food and nutrition, and 80 percent read labels, according to a global survey conducted by Kynetec on behalf of the ENOUGH movement. Making safe, nutritious food choices is so important for our families. But with the profusion of labels and conflicting information, understanding the right choice is harder than ever.
