Food fit for Europeans

The European Parliament also negotiated a deal with the Council on new labelling rules and content of such consumers products as baby milk, foods for special medical purposes, low-calorie diets food. (see our previous post: Food for thought) What is interesting is that it was decided to leave out special rules on labelling of gluten and lactose information until another time, when consumer information about foodstuffs would be harmonised. Currently, there are no EU-wide rules on information about lactose-free products. (New rules for baby food, special diet food and low-calorie food) The vote on new rules will take place in June.
