                                                  Inclusion of mandatory information in nutrition information panel does not constitute a nutrition content claim

                                      (2)        To avoid doubt, if this Code requires particular information to be included in a nutrition information panel, the inclusion of that information does not constitute a nutrition content claim.

                                                  Inclusion of voluntary information in nutrition information panel might constitute a nutrition content claim

                                      (3)        If this Code permits, but does not require, particular information to be included in a nutrition information panel, the inclusion of that information constitutes a nutrition content claim unless:

                                                  (b)        the information is a declaration of:

                                                               (i)         if the food contains less than 2 g of dietary fibre per serving—dietary fibre; or

                                                               (iii)       lactose content.


 

                                      (4)        For a food that contains more than 1.15% alcohol by volume, the inclusion in a nutrition information panel of the information referred to in paragraphs 1.2.8—6(1)(a), (b) and (c), and subparagraphs 1.2.8—6(1)(d)(i), (ii) and (iii) does not constitute a nutrition content claim.

Note 3        In this Standard, the following terms are also defined: fvnl, information period, nutrition content claim table and required records.
