Abstract

This article reviews the regulatory environment with respect to nutrition information in several countries. It then discusses the trends in label formats and the increasing number of studies that have focused on this issue. It summarizes some of the theoretical attempts at modeling the economics of nutrition information search. It then illustrates and addresses some important econometric issues that have been only minimally covered in the extensive empirical literature on nutritional labeling and health outcomes. Furthermore, it discusses the literature on nutritional labeling and food away from home, which has received a lot of attention over the last five years. It mainly updates previous literature reviews on nutritional labels and nutrition/health claims, and then concludes with future areas of research.
