Or. {EN}en

Justification

GDA-labelling does not give the consumer sufficient information. For example is ½ litre coca-cola two portions, even if this size is normally consumed by one person. An apple will look less healthy than Kinder milk chocolate or potato chips with regard to sugar and this will lead the consumer to think that there is not a big difference between eating fruit, milk chocolate or potato chips.

Or. {EN}en

Justification

A nutrition declaration should be clear, consistent, relevant and evidence-based information, which supports the health conscious food choices and enable consumers to choose a balanced diet.

The use of portion sizes and average reference intake values (GDA) will not provide the consumers with clear and consistent information. On the contrary it will add to the confusion of the consumers. It does not support a well-informed and easy choice at moment of purchase. As these figures are based on averages it would not cover the individual consumer, but only an average person. Average persons do not exist.

Furthermore, portion sizes and GDA are already used in the US with no apparent effect on consumer understanding and/or behaviour.

It is clear that GDA without the use of portion sizes would be absurd. But there are many problems with using portion sizes. Take the soft drinks as an example. The soft drinks industry has chosen 250 ml as the serving size. When the consumer buys a can of 33 ml. the reference used would be the 33 ml, whereas the reference value when the consumer buys a 0,5 liter bottle is 250 ml. This means that the GDA is higher on a can of 33 ml than on 0,5 liter bottle. This is another source of confusion for the consumer and another reason why we support the obligatory reference to 100 g or 100 ml and the reference to portions sizes as additional information. Without portion sizes GDA would be absurd.

Specification per portion is very problematic and in reality inapplicable as the portion sizes are not standardized and each food’s share of the diet in the EU member countries differs significantly.

* Values to be established in reference to Article 31, paragraph 3a (new)

Or. {EN}en

Justification

The values currently foreseen in Annex XI do not result from independent research and differ from recommendations such as from the UK Food Standards Agency or WHO. Currently, EFSA is working at the setting of such reference intake values and is supposed to come out with its proposals in spring 2009. These should be taken into consideration when defining the reference intake values. Linked to AM on Article 31, paragraph 3a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment





Voluntary indication of reference intakes for children (GDAs) on the packaging of food products if these are produced expressly for chldren.

Or. {HU}hu

Justification

In the case of products manufactured expressly for children, it is vital to know the products’ nutritional content expressed in terms of the recommended daily intake for children (GDA) so that parents can decide responsibly whether to purchase a particular product for their children.

Or. {DE}de

Justification

The calculation with two different units leads to contradictory results because of inconsistent conversion factors. Since 'kcal' is a measurement unit more easily understood by consumers than the 'kJ' unit, the indication should be given solely in 'kcal'.

Or. {DE}de

Justification

Einheitliche Begriffsbestimmungen (“Nährwertkennzeichnung”).

Die Angabe des Brennwertes in „kcal“ ist für den Verbraucher leichter verständlich als der Hinweis in „kJ“. „kJ“ sollte daher gestrichen werden.

Natrium statt Salz: In der Nährwertkennzeichnung sollte auf „Natrium“ anstelle von „Salz“ hingewiesen werden. Der physiologisch relevante Stoff ist „Natrium“ und nicht (Koch-)Salz; bei gesalzenen Lebensmitteln spielt das kaum eine Rolle, für nährwertbezogene Angaben „Natriumarm“ und „streng natriumarm“ ist der Unterschied zwischen Natrium und Salz jedoch essentiell. Eine „Salzangabe“ wäre etwa bei Erfrischungsgetränken irreführend, enthalten diese kein „(Koch-)Salz“, jedoch „Natrium“. Um eine Irreführung des Verbrauchers hinanzuhalten, sollte daher die Angabe von Natrium beibehalten werden.

Or. {DE}de

Justification

The current order in which nutrients appear in nutrition labelling (i.e. energy, protein, carbohydrate and fat) should be retained. The general reference in Recitals 32 and 33 to '... certain nutritional elements of importance to public health' is no justification for changing the order. In addition, all nutritional recommendations refer to these macronutrients; consumers have become accustomed to, and have 'learned', this way of presenting the information.
