9-B: a Nuanced Nutritional System Facilitates the Recognition of Healthy Options, Increases Sales and Choice of Healthy Foods: a Comparison Between 3-Colors and 5-Colors Traffic-Lights Systems

Simplified nutritional-labeling systems provide single indicators of nutritional quality. Four studies compared two nutrition-labeling systems varying in complexity. A more subtle system (traffic-light with five colors instead of three) increases healthy choice and purchase. The 5-color system facilitates nutritional information processing and this influences healthiness perception of food products.
