Food information: nutritional value, health benefits
The Ministry of Health of Ukraine has developed a draft order “On approval of the requirements for allegations about nutritional value of foodstuffs and for allegations about the health benefits of foodstuffs” and made it for public discussion.
It aims to align Ukrainian legislation with Commission Regulation (EU) regarding claims of nutritional value and health benefits. This will allow you to control the truth of the information given on the food (labelling), documents and advertising. The project concerns goods manufactured in Ukraine and abroad.
All requirements also apply to dietary supplements and baby nutrition if, in accordance with these provisions, namely Order №1114 of 19.12.2013 “On Approval of Hygienic Requirements for Dietary Supplements” and Order №696 of 06.08.2013 “On Approval of Hygiene Requirements for Baby Products nutrition, safety parameters and individual indicators of their quality”, nothing else is provided.
