Amendment to the Regulations on front-of-package nutrition labelling
Jul 26, 2022
The amendments to the Regulations to require front-of-package (FOP) nutrition labelling for most prepackaged food products repealed the table of nutrient content claims that followed section B.01.513 and incorporated it by reference into the Regulations as a new Table of Permitted Nutrient Content Statements and Claims. As a result, in the List of Permitted Food Additives with Other Accepted Uses, Health Canada has replaced the reference to the "table following section B.01.513" with a reference to the "Table of Permitted Nutrient Content Statements and Claims" in entries that permit the use of microcrystalline cellulose and powdered cellulose in unstandardized foods meeting the requirements set out in this table for the subject "Reduced in energy". This modification is now effective.
