How the Disclosure of Nutrition Information With Different 'Per-Serving Basis' Affects Sales Volume

This study analyzes how lower serving-size specifications on nutrition labels affects sales volume. After label introduction, sales for yogurts increased with lower serving-size specification. The objective healthiness of the products-which is meant to be disclosed-did not affect sales. Thus, nutrition labels can thwart their purpose of promoting healthier purchases.
