Finkelstein Thompson LLP investigates fraudulent "All Natural" food claims
The law firm Finkelstein Thompson LLP has launched an investigation into false claims by food and beverage companies.
Americans are increasingly concerned with healthy eating. As part of this phenomenon, health-conscious consumers often pay premium prices for "all natural" food products. However, many foods and beverages labeled as "all natural" actually contain ingredients that are synthetic, processed using dangerous chemicals, and/or genetically-modified. When products are falsely labeled, consumers do not get what they paid for.
Non-natural substances falsely labeled as "all natural" may include, among others: Ammonium Bicarbonate; Ascorbic Acid; Biotin; Calcium Lactate; Carageenan; Carob Bean Gum; Choline Bitartrate; Cultured Corn Solids; Cyanocobalamin; D-Calcium Pantothenate; Erythritol; Ester Gum; Fructooligosaccharides; Guar Gum; Gum Arabic; Gum Acacia; Inulin; Magnesium Lactate; Malic Acid; Maltodextrin; Milk Protein Concentrate; Niacinamide; Pectin; Potassium Citrate; Pyridoxine Hydrochloride; Quercetin; Reb A; Soy Lecithin; Soy Protein Isolate; Sunflower Lecithin; Thiamin Mononitrate; Vitamin A Palmitate; Xanthan Gum; Zinc Gluconate; Zinc Methionine Sulfate; and Zinc Oxide.
