Analysing the use of the Australian Health Star Rating system by level of food processing./International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity
Analyse the use of health stars on new packaged food products entering the Australian marketplace by level of food processing.
The majority of new food products displaying an HSR were UP (74.4%), followed by MP (12.5%), P (11.6%), and PCI (1.5%). The median HSR of MP products (4.5) was significantly higher than the median of P (4) and UP products (3. 5) (all p < 0.05). In all NOVA categories HSR profiles were distributed towards higher star ratings, and the majority (77%) of UP products displayed an HSR ≥ 2.5.
