[China Packaging News] the Spring Festival is coming. At present, food labels are printed on most food packages in markets, shopping malls and supermarkets. Before the festival, I tell you to understand the meaning of labels on food packages when shopping for food! In the food circulation link, according to the external form of food, food is divided into two categories: pre packaged food and bulk food. At present, most of the food sold in markets, shopping malls and supermarkets are pre packaged food

there are many contents in food labels, which you must have seen when shopping in the supermarket, but you don't necessarily know how to look or what to look at. First of all, you will definitely look at the production date and shelf life. It is not necessarily that the closer the production date is, the better. In fact, as long as it is within the shelf life. Don't store food at home. A pile of customized cartons lie behind the counter of Dutch post for many days. If you buy too much, you may put it in the corner and never remember it. No matter how long the shelf life is. In addition, you should check whether the storage conditions are written on the package. If there are special requirements, such as refrigeration, you need to store according to its requirements, otherwise it may deteriorate in advance. The basic function of food labeling is to clearly and accurately describe the name, ingredient list, net content, producer name, batch number, production date, etc. of the marked food. Scientifically convey the quality characteristics, safety characteristics, eating and drinking instructions and other information of the food to consumers

consumers understand the properties and characteristics of food through the label content, and can choose food with the help of labels, so as to protect consumers' right to know and choice

the label should indicate nine items

(I) name, specification, net content, production date

(II) list of ingredients or ingredients

(III) name, address and contact information of the manufacturer

(IV) shelf life

(V) product standard code

(VI) storage conditions

(VII) the common name of the food additive used in the national standard

, which teaches you how to identify food labels. First of all, for ordinary food, the contents of food labels must be complete, complete, standardized and authentic. All contents must be accurately marked in accordance with the food related standard: BBT 0024 (2) 004 general standard for product labels. Including the name of the food, ingredient list, net content and solid content, the name and address of the manufacturer and distributor, production date and storage guide, quality grade, product standard number, shelf life, etc. There is a big difference between shelf life and storage period, which many consumers don't understand. Shelf life refers to the best eating period, which is the period to maintain the hygienic quality and nutrition of food under the conditions specified on the label. Within this period, the food is completely suitable for sale and complies with the hygienic quality specified in the label content and product standards. The food is still edible for a certain period of time beyond this period. Storage period refers to the recommended final consumption period. Under the conditions specified on the label, the final date when the food can be eaten. After this period, the quality of the product may change, and the food is no longer suitable for sale and consumption

secondly, you usually see the ingredient list on the food package, especially depending on which food additives are used. In fact, food additives are very safe. You can't understand the role of each ingredient after reading these information. The function of the ingredient list is only to meet the right to know, and it has little guiding significance for you to choose what food. The key is to see what nutrients this food provides, which requires you to learn to read the nutrition label (which will be introduced later). Some foods will also indicate substances that may cause allergies. If you are allergic, you can pay attention to whether there is relevant information

(VIII) production license number

(IX) other matters stipulated by laws, regulations or food safety standards. Infant food needs to be labeled with nutritional components. It is the main and auxiliary food for infants and other specific groups. People with labels are doomed to be troubled, and should indicate the main nutritional components and their content

consumers can understand, judge and distinguish the quality characteristics of food through the name, specification, net content and production date of food, grasp the freshness of food, and identify the internal quality and characteristics of food through the list of ingredients or ingredients. The marking of the producer's name, address and contact method can help consumers choose according to the producer's reputation. In case of quality problems, it is convenient for consumers to contact the manufacturer, The shelf life can indicate the freshness of food, so that consumers can buy and eat products within the validity period. The product standard code can reflect the quality characteristics of food and the product basis standard

mark the production license number for consumers to query, so that consumers can buy at ease. The label shall indicate the food additives used. If the general name in the national standard can enable consumers to understand and understand other matters that must be indicated according to laws, regulations or food safety standards, it shall also specifically indicate that the label of main and auxiliary foods for infants and other specific groups shall also indicate the main nutritional components and content

the food safety law also stipulates that food labels shall not contain false and exaggerated contents, and shall not involve disease prevention and treatment efficacy. Producers shall be responsible for the contents contained in the labels. The food interface shall be mild, and the labels shall be clear, obvious and easy to identify. Food that is inconsistent with the contents contained in the labels shall not be sold. Food operators shall sell prepackaged food in accordance with the warning signs and matters needing attention on food labels

at the same time, Article 66 of the food safety law also clearly stipulates that imported prepackaged food should have Chinese labels and instructions. Labels and instructions shall comply with the provisions of this Law and other relevant laws and regulations of China, as well as the requirements of national food safety standards, stating the origin of the food and the name, address and contact information of domestic agents. Prepackaged food without Chinese labels or instructions, or labels or instructions do not comply with the provisions of this article shall not be imported

if consumers find that the label content of the food they buy is inconsistent with the actual situation, or the food operator has violated the food safety law, they can report or complain to the local industrial and commercial administration department, or call the report and complaint hotline. Consumers who have evidence to prove that the contents of food labels are inconsistent with the actual situation can be compensated according to law

break down large packages of food into small packages. The small packages simply do not indicate the origin, production date and shelf life of the food. Some businesses remove the packaging of expired food and sell it as scattered food, or use some individual stores in towns to sell it to remote areas such as rural areas. Of course, there are also special cases. When the food packaging area is very small, it may only indicate the product name, net content, and the name and address of the producer (or distributor). Vinegar, salt, solid sugar, monosodium glutamate, alcohol greater than 10% and other individual varieties can not be marked with shelf life

some enterprises' labels are exaggerated and random. Some manufacturers' products are printed with milk, eggs and other patterns on the packaging, but milk and eggs are not found in the ingredient list. Some products have a shelf life of 1-3 months, which is difficult for consumers to grasp. If the food goes bad after one month, I have to admit my bad luck, because the shelf life can be counted as one month. If the goods are still on sale after one month, it seems blameless, because the shelf life can reach three months. In addition, you should also look at the manufacturer's information. Regular products will be clearly marked, such as origin, production license number, manufacturer, address, etc. Fake and shoddy products or workshop foods often do not have such information or incomplete labels. Such foods are very risky, and it is best not to buy them

when the Spring Festival comes, many elderly friends will buy some nutritional and health food in particular, so pay attention to the label of special nutritional food, and tell you the de meaning on the label! The content on the health food label stipulates that the national food and Drug Administration approves the health food that has obtained the national health food approval certificate. The content of the label and instructions must be indicated, including the health function, suitable people, eating method, suitable consumption amount, storage method The name and content of the functional ingredients (if the efficacy cannot be determined under the existing technical conditions, the name of the raw materials related to the health function must be marked), the approval number of health food, the mark of health food and the label content specified in the relevant standards or requirements

the publicity of health function can only be carried out within the scope of health food approval or marked on the food label. It is not allowed to exaggerate the health function at will. It is specially stipulated that the label shall not imply the publicity and therapeutic effect of healing the disease, and it is strictly prohibited to use feudal superstition to publicize health food

the contents that should not be marked include preventing or treating certain diseases, prolonging life, rejuvenating white hair to black hair, anti-cancer and cancer treatment, or other similar terms

the last reminder is to check whether the package is complete. If there are holes, cracks, bulging and gas, it may be something wrong during transportation and storage. Don't buy it. Wish all friends a auspicious and healthy year of the monkey
