Imagine for a moment that every food available in the supermarket was packaged in a one-style-fits-all manner. All food was either in its fresh state, or in clear labeling, with only the top 2-3 ingredients determining the foods name.
I think this would immediately encourage people to buy ‘food’, rather stuff that has been manufactured to resemble food, more often.
I have looked through my cupboard, and present below, as a point of example, what some foods would become (current name, followed by actual components (new name):
Pumpkin; actual: Pumpkin
Vanilla Almond Cluster Crisp; actual: Cereal sugar
Drinking Chocolate; actual: Sugar cocoa
Maple flavored syrup; actual: Fructose (sugar) water sugar
Sweet Tangelo Orange Marmalade; actual: Sugar water
Honey, can you pick up some cereal sugar, sugar cocoa, sugar water sugar, and sugar water while you are down at the supermarket?!
It would of course make shopping a hell of a lot more confusing, but would at least increase the consciousness of what were are actually buying and eating.
