Over the past 40 years, the range of foods availabble in packets, Jars and cans has increased dramatically.
Legislative bodies recorgnised that consumers required more informative labels in order to make the best choices for healthy issues, which resulted in improved product labels.
Food producers in the EU community and North America are required by Judiciary to provide the following information on Product labels.
Total weight or volume, a list of the ingredients and the Additives in order of weight, the name and the address of the manufacturer and the country of the origin.
Manufacturers should also list calories values per 100g, suggested number of servings that the packaged food provides and date after which the product can not be sold or should not be eaten.
This date is usually stamped on the lid or the base of the product. Many labels also provide nutritional analysis of food, Such as total fats, carbohydrates and Protein and many content.
Finally, water is vital for life, as the principal component of body fluids it carries nutrients around the body, lubricates joints and dissolves food for digestion and absorption.
Water is contained in all the foods you consume and the tea, coffee, milk and fruits you drink, but you should also drink plenty of plain pure water each day.
