CODEX GENERAL STANDARD FOR THE LABELLING OF PREPACKAGED FOODS

Codex General Standard for the Labelling of Prepackaged Foods


Just in case you thought we were kidding about food labeling shenanigans....

From the Codex General Standard for the Labelling of Prepackaged Foods and
submitted to all Member Nations and Associate Members of FAO and WHO for
acceptance in accordance with the General Principles of the Codex

Alimentarius.:
4.2.1.3 Where an ingredient is itself the product of two or more ingredients, such a compound ingredient may be declared, as such, in the list of ingredients, provided that it is immediately accompanied by a list, in brackets, of its ingredients in descending order of proportion (m/m). Where a compound ingredient (for which a name has been established in a Codex standard or in national legislation) constitutes less than 5%
of the food, the ingredients, other than food additives which serve a technological function in the finished product, need not be declared. The entire document could be found at http://www.international-confectionery.com/pdf/STAN1-EN.pdf

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
