DuPont’s Perspective on Addressing Clean Label Challenges

As consumers continue to look for healthier foods, they pay close attention to everything they put in their bodies, relying on food packaging and labels to aid their purchasing decisions. In the quest to better understand what’s in their foods, more and more are gravitating toward a clean label. But the characteristics of a ‘clean label’, and how to offer one, are often difficult to define.
