Best Food Facts gives you the opportunity to connect with food system experts around the country who have done the research, checked their work and want to share the results.
Our mission is to bring you the most objective, trustworthy and accurate information directly from the experts. We seek to ensure that content on Best Food Facts is useful, timely, relevant and simple to understand so that, based on the facts, you can make informed decisions. We are dedicated to providing information on the many facets of food production, preparation, consumption and everything in-between.
How do we get the facts and who do they come from?
We engage University-based experts (majority are PhDs or RDs) who have either completed or reviewed research on the specific topic being discussed. We contact the expert, conduct an interview, write up the post based on the interview, and the expert has full editorial control to change, add, delete and ultimately approve all content before it is posted to the website.
How do we ensure the content on our site isn't biased by the members of our sponsor - the Center for Food Integrity?
The content on the website is not subject to member approval - only the approval of those experts who are providing their professional insights. CFI staff, independent of its members, works directly with food system experts to gain approval on all content prior to posting. All content on the Best Food Facts website has been approved or previously published by the expert being quoted.
We encourage comments and discussion that support informed consumer choices. Any commentary that could be taken as threatening, harassing, profane, obscene, slanderous, sexist or racist will not be published. Off-color and off-topic comments will be deleted. Advertising and campaigning is not allowed.
How do we determine what topics we cover?
We receive input from readers like you (submit your question here!), as well as gather ideas based on national news stories, thought-leading publications and the food-focused topics being discussed on blogs.
