Did You Read The Food Label When Buying Biscuits?

2022-11-11

When you are shopping for biscuits, do you look at the food label on the package? In the past, we wouldn't even look at the small letters on the packaging. With the emphasis on healthy eating, people will more or less look at food labels when shopping. Food labeling represents one of the principal tools for food companies to communicate with consumers at the time of purchase. Food labeling seems like a modern thing, however, it actually started in the United Kingdom in the 13th century, under the Assize of Bread law. This is intended to prevent bakers from adding ground beans and peas to bread dough.



The amount of information on food packaging has increased in recent years to inform consumers about product characteristics and nutritional value. This makes food labels potentially very confusing, and there are differences in food and nutrition labels around the world.

However, the following categories have to be displayed on food labels:

  • Ingredients (in order from most to least and is very valuable)

  • Expiration date                                                                 

  • Net weight

  • Calories

  • Protein

  • Fat(on many labels the different types of fat are broken down: Saturated fat is mainly found in fatty cuts of meat and high-fat dairy foods. Trans fat has been shown to increase the risk of coronary heart disease because it raises "bad" LDL cholesterol and lowers "good" HDL cholesterol.)

  • Carbohydrate

  • Sodium

  • Allergy Information(if the product contains any of the following types of allergen then this must be declared: milk and milk products, eggs, nuts such as almonds, walnuts, cashews, pistachios and so on, fish, soy, shellfish, crustaceans such as prawns)

  • Vitamins

  • Minerals

 

Besides, there are 65 countries that require labeling of products that contain GMOs.




People pay more and more attention to food safety. In addition to strengthening the control of product quality, biscuit manufacturers must also make food labels according to the regulations of the country where they are sold.
