Food Information to Consumers
A new Regulation 1169/2011 on food information to consumers governs today the labelling of all food products on the market, including the nutrition labelling. It integrates former Directives 2000/13 and 90/496. New set of rules on nutrition information entered into force in December 2016.
The information per portion is particularly relevant for foods where consumption per eating occasion is much less than 100g, as is the case for vegetableoils for which a typical portion of 10g, corresponding to an easily measurable soup spoon, has been determined by the European oil sector.
