Not really. Two weeks ago, my wife attended a seminar on treating autism and it specifically went into dietary concerns. They said that U.S. companies aren't required to be more specific than "artificial flavorings" and some get by with simply "flavorings". Consumers have the right to ask the company what those flavorings are, but the company has the right to refuse to provide that information.

That's the biggie, imo. Look at the sodium count in those meals-of-convenience (either frozen or dry-packaged like Ramen Noodles).
