China Reveals the Second Consultation Draft of GB 28050 General Rules for Nutrition Labeling of Prepackaged Food

The content of saturated fat (or saturated fatty acid) and sugar labeling is compulsory. The scope of prepackaged food, which can be exempted from nutrition labeling, is revised. The limit of surface area for food exempted from nutrition labeling is increased to 150 cm2 (for the total surface area) or 40 cm2 (for the largest surface area). Descriptions like “cal,” “kcal” and “calories” are allowed for the labeling of energy. Low-protein is not allowed to be labeled as a content claim. Added the function claims of sugar, α- linolenic acid, vitamin K, phosphorus and potassium, etc.
