What Is Clean Label?

‘Clean Label’ is a non-government regulated term that refers mainly to non-scientific, plain language on packaging, reduced allergens and additives, and fewer, more recognizable ingredients. Some companies may also go further to communicate their ethically sourced, organic, or non-GMO ingredients as part of this trend.

Clean label is not about consumers eating less packaged foods, but about a desire to have these same packaged foods made with more ‘wholesome’ ingredients that are closer to their natural state.
