Advice on Food Labelling

The following foods have to be clearly mentioned on the label of pre-packed foods.

Food Labelling
  • Celery
  • Cereals containing gluten
  • Eggs
  • Fish
  • Lupin
  • Milk
  • Molluscs
  • Mustard
  • Peanuts
  • Sesame seeds
  • Shellfish
  • Soya
  • Sulphur dioxide

  • Also sulphite (in concentrations above 10mg/kg) need to be listed
 

This information can help you identify whether or not a food contains an ingredient that you need to avoid. Sometimes small amounts of an allergen can get into a product by accident, even though food producers take great care to stop this happening.

If there is a possibility that this could happen in a factory, the food label might say something such as ‘may contain nuts’.
