Previously, I mentioned the rise in sales of superfoods and their claim to protect against cancer and heart disease.
Well, a new law in the EU has been introduced to ban products that claim that they are superfoods – unless it can be proven that they are. I guess this is good. Otherwise, all types of food will be marketed as superfoods. The only ones who will benefit are the companies marketing these products as it allows them to sell at a higher price.
To me, everything is a superfood … as long as you eat it in moderation.
