Quantitative declarations outside the nutrition facts table
On December 14, 2016, amendments to nutrition labelling, list of ingredients and food colour requirements of the Food and Drug Regulations came into force. Regulated parties have a five (5) year transition period to meet the new labelling requirements.
Consult the Former – Quantitative Declarations Outside the Nutrition Facts Table for information on the former requirements.
The energy value and the amount of many nutrients are required (or permitted) to be declared inside the Nutrition Facts table. However, quantitative declarations of energy value and the amount of nutrients per serving of stated size are also permitted outside the Nutrition Facts table, on labels or in advertisements [B.01.301, FDR].
Foods usually exempt from carrying a Nutrition Facts table will lose their exemption upon including a quantitative declaration on the label. Foods always exempt from carrying a Nutrition Facts table will never lose their exemption when a quantitative statement is made.
