UK Food Officials Refute Notion that Ultra-Processed Foods Are Inherently Unhealthy

by Ella

In response to growing concerns surrounding ultra-processed foods (UPF), UK food officials have recently challenged the notion that UPFs are inherently unhealthy due to their manufacturing processes and artificial ingredients.

At a press conference held on September 27th, a panel of scientists affirmed that the current method employed by the UK and many other countries to assess the nutritional value of foods—primarily based on levels of fat, salt, sugar, and calories—remains the most effective approach to promoting a healthy diet.


This statement comes as part of an ongoing discussion regarding UPFs and their role in modern diets. While the debate around the health implications of these foods continues, UK food authorities are emphasizing the importance of a comprehensive nutritional assessment approach that considers multiple factors.
