Consumers are paying closer attention to food and beverage labels, scrutinizing what's on the label more today than ever before.

While much of the actual label reading occurs at the shelf in a store, the cultural forces behind reading labels are heavily influenced by what is happening in consumers' home lives and where they are positioned in the core, mid-level or periphery in terms of the World of Wellness.
