China Consults on General Rules for Nutrition Labeling of Prepackaged Foods (GB 28050) and Other Nine GB Standards

Revisions to the standards of DHA oil and ARA oil cover sensory requirements, indicators of solvent residues and peroxide value, test methods for physiochemical indicators, etc. As for GB 28050, it is the third consultation draft that China opens for public feedback. Compared to GB 28050-2011, the content of saturated fat (or saturated fatty acid) and sugar is listed as compulsory labeling items in this draft. Moreover, the limit of surface area for food exempted from nutrition labeling is changed to 40 cm2 (for the largest surface area).

As revealed by an official notice on Sept. 26, 2021, China is now consulting 10 national food safety standards, i.e., one standard for general labeling and nine standards for nutrient fortifiers. Comments shall be submitted prior to Nov. 21, 2021.
