Nutrition labels of prepackaged food become "furnishings"

speaking of food, consumers are naturally most concerned about the quality of products. In recent years, food safety problems have occurred from time to time, making more and more consumers more cautious in choosing food

recently, when visiting some supermarkets in the island city, it was found that consumers often pay attention to the shelf life of commodities and whether they are green, natural and pollution-free when choosing daily necessities such as milk, vegetables, meat, eggs and beverages. Even if the price is relatively high, they will have a high desire to consume. However, during the visit, it was found that the nutrition label, which has been fully implemented on prepackaged food since new year's day this year, has not received much attention

in this regard, some experts said that this reflects the lack of nutrition knowledge among consumers. Nutrition labels are a convenient way to obtain nutrition knowledge, and play a positive role in promoting dietary nutrition balance and reducing obesity and other chronic non communicable diseases. When consumers choose to encourage enterprises to participate in the investment and construction of port industrial parks and wharves to buy food, they should not only pay one-sided attention to the propaganda slogans of manufacturers, but also pay more attention to the nutritional components of products

green natural food is very popular

the child is still young and dare not drink milk for him. I heard that organic milk is suitable for children without additives, so I want to buy it for him. A few days ago, during a visit to the supermarket, I met Ms. Liu, a citizen who was buying milk for her children. Ms. Liu told me that although organic milk was much more expensive than ordinary milk, she decided to buy it for safety. However, Ms. Liu is at a loss about how to identify the authenticity of organic food

like Ms. Liu, it is found that many citizens pay more attention to the words "green, natural, organic and pollution-free" on the product packaging when purchasing meat, vegetables, milk, eggs, beverages and other necessities of life. However, most consumers do not know the authenticity of these self claimed high-quality foods, and many people just rely on simple belief

a few days ago, a report on Chinese food safety consumer lifestyles issued by a professional organization also showed that despite the constant reports that the publicity on Chinese product packaging is not worthy of the name, 87% of people are still willing to pay a high price for food marked with "all natural", and 97% of Chinese urban consumers said they would only check the shelf life before buying food and beverages

nutrition labels pay less attention

compared with the tempting slogans of green, such as plugging in and out the USB connector again if the drive is abnormal, pure natural, organic food, etc., the nutrition labels that have more practical guiding significance for commodity selection and have been fully implemented on prepackaged food since new year's Day 2013 seem to be neglected. The general rules for nutrition labeling of prepackaged food stipulates that prepackaged food produced after january1,2013 shall be compulsorily labeled with the content values of four nutrients and energy (4+1) and their percentage in the reference value of nutrients (NRV). 4 refers to core nutrients, namely protein, fat, carbohydrate and sodium, and 1 refers to energy. If the food ingredients contain hydrogenated and/or partially hydrogenated oils and fats or are used in the production process, the content of trans fats (acids) shall be marked, otherwise they shall not be sold. The standard also makes specific provisions on the labeling, claim and function claim of other nutrients. For example, information such as high calcium and low fat can no longer be marked at will, and the content of corresponding nutrients must reach the value specified in the general rules

however, most consumers do not know much about the role and implementation of nutrition labels. Ms. Liu, a citizen, told me that when shopping for food, she usually only cares about the shelf life, net content and whether the product is green. She doesn't care about how much energy, protein, fat and carbohydrates it contains. First, she doesn't have this habit. Second, she feels she can't understand it. Most consumers agree with Ms. Liu's statement

don't let health labels become mere gimmicks

in this regard, some experts said that this reflects the lack of nutrition knowledge among consumers. Nutrition labels are a convenient way to obtain nutrition knowledge, and play a positive role in promoting dietary nutrition balance and reducing obesity and other chronic non communicable diseases

insiders said: in fact, it is not difficult to understand the nutritional composition table of food. For example, the content of carbohydrate and fat in this food can be calculated by the content per 100ml, which has a practical guiding significance for consumers who want to control sugar intake and avoid obesity. Experts suggest that consumers should not only pay one-sided attention to the propaganda slogans of manufacturers, but also pay more attention to the nutritional components of products when purchasing food. Whether the food is healthy or not, and whether there is pollution, should not only depend on the publicity of the product itself, but also choose according to its own actual situation

as for a large number of propaganda slogans in the market, it is learned that at present, the food certification in China is only divided into three types: pollution-free agricultural products, green food and organic food. The three types of identification certification institutions are different, but the institutions carrying out the three types of certification must be approved by the national certification and accreditation supervision and Administration Commission. Pollution free agricultural products, green food and organic food all refer to safe food that meets certain standards. Pollution free food is the primary stage of green food development, and organic food is a higher quality green food, "he added. These three kinds of food are like a pyramid. The tower base is pollution-free food, the middle is green food, and the tower tip is organic food. The more upward, the stricter the requirements are. However, there are no relevant certification standards for pure natural, wild, zero pollution and other signs in the country. It is just a gimmick promoted by businesses.
