Did you know...?

Quote:
Size, font and colour of text for declaration

Stakeholders asked if Health Canada was going to specify the size, font and colour of text for declaring food allergens, gluten sources and added sulphites on product labels.

Under the Regulations, the labelling would be required to meet the requirements set out in section A.01.016 which states that all information required by the Regulations to appear on the label of a food must be clearly and prominently displayed on the label and readily discernible to the purchaser or consumer under customary conditions of purchase and use


So does this mean that small white lettering on a silver foil package is not appropriate?

I sure hope so! It would be nice not to have to use a magnifying glass or put something dark behind a clear package to read the ingredients...
