Online grocery shoppers heed diet tips

“Online grocery shoppers who receive dietary advice make healthier food choices, researchers have found. The Australian team compiled a list of commonly purchased foods that contained up to 92 per cent saturated fat and a low fat alternative for each. In a step toward a healthier heart, shoppers who received product-specific dietary advice reduced the saturated fat in their shopping baskets by 10 per cent compared with those who received general diet tips, the team reports in Friday’s issue of the journal PloS Clinical Trials.”
