Wellness Keys

These easy-to-recognize “dots” on our Wegmans Brand products and recipes show you at a glance how each food helps you meet your health and wellness goals. Each Wellness Key alerts you to important nutritional information. Some are for everyone, like Heart Healthy or High Fiber, while others, like Gluten Free or Lactose Free, are meant for people with specific dietary needs.
