Frequently Asked Questions

Guiding Stars is an objective, evidence-based, nutrition guidance program. The system rates foods as good, better and best to give consumers at-a-glance advice: the more stars a food earns, the more nutritious it is. The Guiding Stars algorithm includes only nutrients that have been researched to the extent that a scientific consensus has been reached and for which the knowledge has been translated into dietary guidelines/ nutrition policy at either the national or international level.
