There is a growing consumer segment demanding healthy foods and diets, health and nutrition messages can expand food demand, and governments in the U.S. and EU, faced with increasing obesity and associated health outcomes, want consumers to have reliable information to choose healthy diets.

Research and promotion effects are attracting interest by other commodity groups. Policy and regulatory issues abound.
