Food Labeling Requirements
When you are making different types of foods the consumer needs to know what is in them so they know if they can eat it or not. 14 main allergens need to be listed if any of them are being used in food. Pre-packaged food must have the ingredients list. Allergenic ingredients have to be listed on the food label in bold, contrasting colours or by underlining them. Food allergies usually cause relatively mild and minor symptoms but some food allergies can cause severe reactions that may be life-threatening. The best way to prevent an allergic reaction is to avoid the substance that you are allergic to, so being able to quickly recognise allergens on a food label is a solution. It is an important measure to prevent serious health consequences.
Hundreds of people have different food allergies and intolerances, so correct food labelling can be a lifesaving solution.
