Canada's Food Guide is broken — and no one wants to fix it
The Globe and Mail
While it's true that pretty much no one goes grocery shopping with Canada's Food Guide in hand, that doesn't mean the Guide doesn't play an incredibly important role in our nation's health. Touted by Health Canada as the second-most downloaded government document behind tax forms, it serves as our country's nutritional backdrop. The Guide underlies the diet policies and programs in our publicly funded schools, hospitals, arenas and corporations; it is taught to our children, our future doctors, dietitians and other allied health professionals as gospel; and it is utilized by the food industry to advertise the health benefits of their products.

Has the gluten-free food trend peaked?
Hamilton Spectator
Canadians may be losing their taste for gluten-free foods. After nearly five years of consistent growth and a tripling of sales since 2009, the gluten-free food category declined last year, according to research firm NPD Group. The Canadian Celiac Association estimates that one in 133 Canadians is affected by celiac disease and suffers after consuming gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye that gives bread elasticity.

Functionalfoods 2.0: Beyond the nutritional shoehorn...
NutraIngredients

Tyson Foods says it will stop use of human antibiotics in chicken by 2017

Tyson Foods Inc, the largest U.S. poultry producer, plans to eliminate the use of human antibiotics in its chicken flocks by September 2017 — one of the most aggressive timelines yet set by an American poultry company. The Arkansas-based chicken and meat giant also said it is working on ways to curtail such on-farm drug practices at its other protein businesses, which include pork and beef.

Better-for-you foods: Help your customers eat healthier
Progressive Grocer
The Jewel-Osco grocery store in south Oak Park, Ill., features a typical in-store deli at the end of the main entrance aisle. But there in the cold case, along with the usual array of deli meats and cheeses, health-conscious shoppers can also find reduced-fat cheese, low-sodium hard salami, reduced-sodium Polish ham and fresh-made Kale Super Salad — a relatively recent offering that one deli employee describes as "really popular" with regular customers.

The Dorito effect: How our approach to food is killing its flavour
The Globe and Mail
That 14-week-old pasture-raised barred rock chicken was (and remains) the best fried chicken I have ever tasted. This was not a rational measurement of chicken quality based on crispiness, juiciness and "fried chicken flavour," the way it happens in a sensory evaluation. This was get-up-out-of-your-chair-and-start-dancing fried chicken.
