Israel: Parlamento aprueba nueva regulación de etiquetado nutricional para el año 2020
The new nutritional labeling regulation requires that red labels be affixed or printed on the front of retail packaging of specific products larger than 25 square centimeters. Impacted products are those that contain levels of sodium, sugar, and saturated fats in excess of the prescribed limits. Limits are described in detail in Paragraph 5 of the attached regulation. The front of pack labels are in addition to nutritional labeling expressing sugar content and caloric values.
The new labeling requirements will enter into force in two phases. The first phase is a transition period lasting 12 months from January 1, 2020. During the first phase, any products containing greater than 500 milligrams of sodium, 13.5 grams of sugar or 5.0 grams of saturated fats per 100 grams of product would be labeled. During the second phases, those thresholds will decrease to 400 milligrams of sodium, 10 grams of sugar, and 4.0 grams of saturated fats per 100 grams of product.
Certain food products are not impacted by this regulation. Any product not considered to be
prepackaged is excluded. These products may include fruits, vegetables, meats, fresh eggs, and prepared foods purchased at foodservice establishments. Additionally, the regulation enumerates a list of exempted products, including tea, coffee, yeast, food extracts, etc. Specific other products may be excluded from certain aspects of the regulation. For example,
