Natural claims include phrasing like “all natural,” “no additives/ preservatives,” “organic,” and “whole grain.” In the U.S. such claims were featured on 33 percent of all food and beverages launches last year.

Looking at individual product claims, “kosher” was featured in 27 percent of all new-product claims, and “all natural” followed with 15 percent. “No additives/preservatives” comprised 14 percent of claims, “organic” was on 12 percent,  and “microwaveable” was featured on 10 percent of claims.
