Regarding permission for labeling of foods for special dietary uses 

Japan

Mar 29, 2021

"Regarding permission for labeling of Foods for special dietary uses (hereinafter referred to as "FOSDU")" was partially revised on November 17, 2020. With this revision, procedures of written-document submission can now be carried out online (via e-mail) for what is possible instead of in writing. FOSDU are foods with the mark on the right. Currently, 68 labeling cases for FOSDU have been permitted. Considering 18 permitted in the past two years (2019-2020), it seems that FOSDU have become more familiar.

Even if you don’t handle the food category, it may be useful to know what kind of permitted labeling is available for future reference, so I would like to revisit the basics of FOSDU.
