Companies that label high sugar products as ‘nutritious’ are finally being taken to court in the US. And are being forced to pay millions in settlements.
It is time for it to happen in India too. There are too many products that are advertised as ‘nutritious’ when they should actually be coming with a ‘high sugar’ warning. From fruit juices to drink powders, even cereals, the list is never ending. What’s worse is that many of these products are targeted at children.
Misleading advertising is a major food safety issue in India, and it is time for that to change.
