Nutrition professionals know that most of the time, you can't take a food label claim at face value. If the claim is regulated, there is likely a lengthy definition with specific requirements (many of which are complicated, case in point: trans fats). Most consumers are completely unaware of this and instead rely upon their own interpretation of the claim, which could be correct or incorrect. And if the claim is not regulated, it's either a free for all or up to third party certification groups to help establish an industry-accepted definition for the claim.
