NUTRITION AND PLEASURE
When it comes to good food, nutrition and pleasure go hand-in-hand. With public health factors (such as sugar, fat, saturated fats and salt) as key considerations, we aim to provide products that are tastier and healthier choices in their respective categories. Nestlé’s Nutrition Policies commit to reduce sugar and salt and to eliminate trans fatty acids; and to increase use of ingredients that contribute to better health. Nestlé’s commitment to a rigorous nutrient profiling criteria is what helps strengthen our ability to offer you healthier choices.
ASSESSING THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF OUR PRODUCTS
To assess the nutritional value of our products, we have established a rigorous methodology based on recommendations issued by authorities such as the World Health Organization. This is called the Nestlé Nutritional Profiling System.
Each product is measured against specific criteria. The criteria are regularly reviewed by nutrition experts and product specialists to incorporate the latest thinking and developments in nutrition, health and wellness.
he Nestlé Nutritional Profiling System helps us assess whether a Nestlé product achieves the Nestlé Nutritional Foundation criteria. This means it fulfils the nutritional criteria to be appropriate as a frequent choice in a balanced diet.
The Nestlé Nutritional Profiling System has been progressively applied across Nestlé products worldwide since 2004.
MAKING SURE PRODUCTS TASTE GREAT TOO
We understand that consumers are looking for healthier foods that do not compromise on taste.
That’s why we constantly review our product range to improve taste while enhancing nutritional value using a test called 60/40+.
Our 60/40+ initiative ensures that all our products meet rigorous standards for nutrition and consumer preference.
Products are tested with consumer panels and at least 60 out of 100 people must prefer the Nestlé product over the competitor’s.
The ‘+’ refers to the added nutritional benefit in the product.
NAVIGATE YOUR WAY TO BETTER HEALTH?
Every Nestlé product carries a Nutritional compass. Simple, easy-to-understand nutritional information, encouraging you to make good choices about what you want to buy, eat and give to your families.
Our commitment to continue to provide tastier, healthier choices for life starts and ends with you. We commit to helping you in your journey to a healthy life through good nutrition from birth, into your senior years and all the decades in between.
Good Food, Good Life ~ this is the Nestlé promise to its consumers. A promise that consumers can always expect consistency in quality, taste, texture and freshness from any product manufactured imported and distributed by Nestlé.
