Health group calls for ‘usable’ information on food

The European Heart Network (EHN) called on MEPs to back "fair presentation" of the nutritional content of food products and called on the industry to be "more modest with marketing" ahead of a European Parliament vote  on an EU proposal to regulate food information to consumers. The Commission's proposal for a Regulation on the Provision of Food Information to Consumers includes "a significant amount of health aspects" as far as nutrition labelling is concerned, said EHN director Susanne Løgstrup in an interview with EurActiv. If there is no clear nutrition labelling, consumers will be unable to understand the nutritional content of food products and avoid overconsumption of salt and saturated fats, which are both detrimental to cardiovascular health, she said.
