Nutrition labels and health claims: the global regulatory environment

This World Health Organization (WHO) document reviews the global regulatory environment for nutrition labeling and health claims.  It provides an overview of existing international, regional, and national regulations. It compiles, categorizes, and tabulates international, regional, and national regulations, and compares differing regulatory systems in 74 countries and areas. It also reviews regulations on the quantitative declaration of ingredients (information which indicates to consumers the proportion of healthful and less healthful components of the food product).
