Nutrition Claims such as "Cholesterol Free" normally presented at the front of the healthy foods' package while nutrition information presented in a table with detailed information and printed at the back of the healthy foods' package.

However, nutrition information shows more detailed information regarding the product. Both nutrition claim and nutrition information printed as a label of the healthy foods' packaging. Besides that, colour of the packaging also plays an important role of the consumer perceptions towards healthy product. Label and packaging plays an important role for consumers’ perception.
