How many times have we bought the same luncheon, simply because we have seen is the life, or because it’s a known brand Many factors influence our shopping cart, and that says much about the final quality of our purchase. And not necessarily a quality buying more expensive or more abundant. If you also know our food pyramid, we will become increasingly easy and tempting to make a good buy, provided they take care not to go to the supermarket without the head (or on paper) what we eat at home. But what information I get the tags To unify this information, the European Commission adapted (early 2008) a draft regulation for the labeling of foods to be more transparent for the consumer. Here are some key points of the proposal: Prepackaged foods should be obligatory information on the energy content of fat, saturated fat, carbohydrates, sugars and salt / sodium (always in that order) in front of the pack. The content is expressed per 100 g or 100 ml of product or per serving of the food as sold. Also indicate the percentage of the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) covered. This information does not relieve the manufacturer required to declare the amount of other substances, in case of alleged nutrition. Products that have allergens in their ingredient list should notice it, even if it is not pre-packed food.There are many ingredients that can cause allergies or intolerances: cereals containing gluten, crustaceans, eggs, fish, peanuts, soy, milk, nuts, nuts, celery, mustard, sesame seeds, sulfites, lupins and mollusks. Cinergy Health The information must be legible (with a minimum size of 3 mm) and a significant contrast between print and background. The regulation requires products with more than three grams of total fat (eg margarine, sausages, etc.) Also reports the content of cholesterol and total fat content broken down into: saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, and fatty HDL. If the product says nutrition and / or special health will be included on the label in addition to the minimum nutritional information, which is appropriate for the special feature declared.
