Specific nutrient content claim requirements
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 – Specific Nutrient Content Claim Requirements for information on the former requirements.
