The mandatory nutrition declaration may be supplemented with information on: mono-unsaturates, polyunsaturates, polyols, starch, fibre and any of the listed vitamins and minerals present in significant amounts. If a nutrition or health claim regarding any of the supplementary nutrients is made, the nutrient must be included.
Special conditions for vitamins
For vitamins and minerals a 'significant amount' means:
- 15% of the nutrient reference values (NRVs) per 100g or 100ml for products other than beverages
- 7.5% of the NRVs per 100ml for beverages
- 15% of the NRVs if the package contains only a single portion
Forms of expression
Supplementary nutrients, if declared, must be presented per 100g or 100ml and may also be declared per portion and/or per consumption unit. Vitamin and mineral values must also be given as percentage NRVs (or reference intakes) per 100g/100ml.
Format and positioning
Any supplementary nutrients must be presented with the mandatory seven in the same nutrition table, together in a clear format, and in the following order:
|Energy||kJ and kcal|
|Vitamins and minerals||Specified units|
No other nutrient may be included in the nutrition declaration. However, if a nutrition or health claim is made for a substance not in either list, e.g. omega-3, the amount must appear in the same field of vision as the nutrition declaration.
