Suggestion on Choosing Health Food


Prof. Huang gives some suggestions for the public on how to choose healthy food.

There are some important matters in selecting health food. There are three things you can keep in mind. Health food is very similar to medicine. If a product passed the verification of its function, consumers should consult with a professional about the product. Professional refers to physicians, pharmacists or dietitians.

Second, a clear food label provides consumers more information to determine what kind of products meet their needs. Products produced by the company with R&D capability and a good reputation can be more reliable.

Last, the food manufacturer should obtain the certification issued by your government. He will introduce you to the safety food label from the Taiwan government.

This will conclude Prof. Huang’s lecture. In the final part, he mentions the health food market is expanding. How do you view this? Can the expanding market help the public to pursue their health?
