Food labels carry information about the food such as the nutritional value, ingredient list, allergens, country of origin and advisory statements. Most manufactured foods need a label, with a few exceptions such as those sold in very small packages. It’s good to remember that some of the healthiest food may not have a label, such as fruit, vegetables and fresh meat.
Labels must tell the truth - suppliers must give details about the food that are not misleading. For example, this label states the product name as Nestlé MILO Energy Food Drink, made from malted barley, it has 6 vitamins & minerals and is rich in protein. The product must contains malted barley, vitamins, minerals and protein. The ingredient list and the nutrition information panel on this product label shows that it has these ingredients.
