Plant Powered Foods
A guide to making smart food choices
Adding more plant-based foods to your dining? The Plant Powered shopping guide includes nutrition standards to highlight foods that are made from only from plants, such as:
- Nutrient-dense whole foods
- Foods without animal ingredients
- Foods with a plant-based protein ingredient
The Plant Powered shopping guide on shelf tags in stores is light green, and may help time-crunched shoppers locate items that meet lifestyle goals. Please see the standards below for the full criteria.
The Know Your Colors Program (https://www.pricechopper.com/know-your-colors/) is intended for general nutrition information and not as a treatment for any issue or condition.
Look for the color indicators ‣
Each nutrition attribute has a unique color – “Heart Smart” is red, “Organic” is dark green. Look for the color bars on the shelf tag, or explore the color icons when you shop online. Scanning for colors at the shelf makes it quick and easy to find Low Sodium foods (yellow), Carb Smart foods (orange) or Gluten Free items (Blue). Shopping with your kids? Make it a game and energize your whole family to eat well! That is smart food shopping, simplified.
