Summary/Abstract: Due to economic changes, Poland’s food product market is converging with those of its western counterparts. Globalisation and EU common food and health policy are leading to the setting of similar nutritional guidelines in all EU countries. The guidelines are set to decrease the risk of commonly occurring diseases, such as obesity and cancer, which result in part from bad dietary habits. Using case studies from Poland and the U.S., the article presents changes in nutritional guidelines and how they are being popularised.
