This piece of European legislation is called the EU Food Information for Consumers Regulation (EU FIC) and came into force on 13 December 2014. It changes the way allergen information appears on labels and on food that is prepacked, sold loose or served when eating outside of the home.
• Any of the 14 allergens that are on the regulatory list must be emphasised on the label, if they are used as ingredients in your pre-packaged food. You can choose what method you wish to emphasise these allergens, for example, by listing them in bold, italics, highlighted or underlined, to help identify them to potential customers.
• Information about allergenic ingredients is to be located in a single place, i.e. the ingredients list on prepacked food. Meaning that the voluntary use of the previous types of allergy boxes such as: 'Contains nuts’ that provide a short cut to allergen ingredients information also given in the ingredients list is no longer allowed. The use of voluntary precautionary allergen labelling such as ‘maycontain’, to indicate the risk of unintentional presence of allergens in a food, is still permitted and has not been affected by this regulation.
• Previously, loose foods for example in supermarkets, delis, cafes and restaurants; didn’t have to provide information you need about food allergens. However, since 13 December 2014, information on any of the 14 allergens used as ingredients should be provided for these foods.
Any ingredients that consumers may have potential allergies must be clearly highlighted as mentioned above this can be done in a number of ways to comply with the regulations and guidelines. This can be achieved by listing the ingredients in bold, italics, highlighted or underlined.
Potential Allergens Clearly Highlighted
All information about allergenic ingredients has to be located within a single place making it easy for consumers to identify these ingredients. This is designed to eliminate any customer confusion and help them make an informed choice if the product is acceptable for their dietary requirements.
