HC Deb 07 June 1976 vol 912 cc530-1W
Mr. David Hunt

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will make regulations requiring manufacturers to show on the packaging the carbohydrate values of foods, particularly those for diabetic patients.

Mr. Strang

The Labelling of Food Regulations 1970, as amended, require that the carbohydrate content should be declared on the labels of all foods claimed to be suitable for diabetics. The Food Standards Committee is considering this whole subject as part of its review of the United Kingdom food labelling law.
