NEW SURVEY FINDS CONSUMER CONFUSION ABOUT CANNED FOOD PERSISTS

Americans enjoy the many benefits of canned foods, including convenience, value and ease of preparation, according to a new consumer survey commissioned by the Canned Food Alliance (CFA). More than 80 percent of respondents say they rely on canned foods to prepare meals at least a couple of times each month, with 61 percent of those saying they reach for canned foods at least one to two times each week.

Yet the survey also reveals consumers' misperceptions about canned food nutrition that is at odds with recommendations from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Dietary Guidelines for Americans and many nutrition education organizations, which promote consumption of all forms of nutritious foods (canned, fresh, frozen and dried) for a healthy diet. Consumer attitudes also are often contrary to decades of nutrition science that demonstrate the many benefits of enjoying food from a can.

For example, did you know that canned foods are considered minimally processed foods? That's right. To learn more about the survey and the facts about canned foods, click here to read the news release.
