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
