Nutrition Claims-EU

"Nutrition claim" refers to any claim that means or implies that a food has special and beneficial nutritional properties due to the following reasons:

  1. Energy (calorific value):

    1. provide
    2. Provide at a reduced or increased rate or
    3. Not provided
  2. Nutrients or other substances:

    1. contain
    2. Decrease or increase in content
    3. Does not contain

Nutrition declarations are only allowed for nutrition declarations listed in the Annex of Regulation (EC) No. 1924/2006, which was finally revised to Regulation (EU) No. 1047/2012 .

Allowed nutrition claims

low energy

Solid products: no more than 40 kcal/100 g

Liquid products: no more than 20 kcal/100mL.

Table sweetener: Limited to 4 kcal/serving, (equivalent to the sweetness characteristics of 6 g of sucrose).

Reduced energy

Only when the energy value has been reduced by at least 30% can the food be declared energy-reduced , and any statement that may have the same meaning to the consumer must be made and indicate the characteristics of the total energy value reduction of the food.

No energy

Only when the food contained in the product does not exceed 4 kcal (17 kJ)/100 ml can it be claimed that the food has no energy and may have the same meaning to consumers. For table sweeteners, the applicable limit value is 0.4 kcal (1.7 kJ/serving, which has the same sweetness performance as 6 g of sucrose (about 1 teaspoon of sucrose).

Low fat

Solid products do not exceed 3 grams of fat per 100 grams of solids or 1.5 grams of fat in liquids (semi-skimmed milk: 1.8 grams of fat per 100 ml).

Fat free

Only when the product contains no more than 0.5 grams of fat per 100 grams or 100 milliliters, can the food be claimed to be fat-free and may have the same meaning to consumers. However, the expression "X% fat free" should be prohibited.

Low in saturated fat

Including the sum of saturated fatty acids and trans fatty acids.

Solid product: no more than 1.5/100 g.

Liquid products: no more than 0.75/100 mL.

In either case, the sum of saturated fatty acids and trans fatty acids must not provide more than 10% of energy.

Unsaturated fat

The sum of saturated fat and trans fatty acids does not exceed 0.1 g per kilogram of saturated fat. 100 grams or 100 milliliters.

Low sugar

Solid product: no more than 5/100g

Liquid products: no more than 2.5/100mL

Sugar free

The product contains no more than 0.5 g of sugar per 100 g or 100 ml.

No added sugar

Very low sodium/salt content

The product does not exceed 0.04g sodium/salt per 100g or 100ml.

This statement shall not be used for natural mineral water and other waters.

No sodium or salt

The sodium content per 100g of the product does not exceed 0.005g sodium/salt

No added sodium/salt

No more than 0.12g sodium/salt per 100g or 100ml

The product contains at least 3g/100g fiber or at least 1.5g fiber/100kcal.

High cellulose

Product contains at least 6 g / 100g of at least 3 grams of fiber or fiber / 100 kcal .

Protein source

At least 12% of the energy value of food is provided by protein

high protein

At least 20 % of the energy value of food is provided by protein

The source of [vitamin name/source] and/or [mineral name/source]

Any claim that the food is a source of vitamins and/or minerals and may have the same meaning to consumers can only be made if the product contains at least a significant amount as defined in the Appendix of Directive No. 90. 496 / EEC or the amount of derogation provisions granted in accordance with Article 6 of European Parliament and Council (EC) Regulation (EC) No. 1925/2006 of December 20, 2006, which involves the addition of vitamins and minerals to food and Certain other substances [1].

High [Vitamin/S Name] and/or [Minerals/S Name]

Any claim that the food is rich in vitamins and/or minerals and may have the same meaning to consumers can only be made when the value of the "vitamin name/S source" contained in the product is at least twice the value. ] And/or [mineral name].

Contains [name of nutrient or other substance]

Only when the product complies with all applicable regulations can it be claimed that the food contains a certain nutrient or other substance, and this regulation does not specify specific conditions, or any claim that may have the same meaning to consumers.
