It is a truth universally acknowledged that Big Business in the United States is against regulation. Except when a law protects its own interests. Case in point: food processors and ingredient labeling.
Public Health England in March released its new Eatwell guide, similar to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and My Plate (the old food pyramid). England’s top dairy association was quick with a critique, calling the recommendations “baffling and disappointing.”
The new guidelines support the consumption of reduced-fat dairy products. It is up to dairy marketers to figure out how to convince American adults to eat more. They fall short of the recommended three daily servings.
