Although past research has investigated health claims in various aspects, relatively little effort is directed toward providing consumers opportunity about what they can learn past health claims. The past FDA health claims can provide useful lesson to consumers, policy makers, and manufacturers as well about how they can leverage the past, current, and upcoming FDA health claims. Thus, this research aims to examine how consumers can learn about FDA health claims, what they learn from past FDA health claims, and how we educate consumers. Implications for nutrition education, product labeling, and soy health claim are provided.
