The scientific community is very clear about what nutrients benefit us and how: empowering consumers means communicating information to them in a way that is transparent, clear, and easily understandable.
However, Nutriscore relies on outdated, non-scientific knowledge that misleads consumers and risks promoting unhealthy eating patterns.

Keep in mind that Nutriscore and other proposed front-of-pack labels are based on fixed algorithms, but nutrition science evolves constantly and with it our understanding of how nutrients impact our health.
