§ Mr. Fisher
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will publish his Department's definitions of(a) raspberry flavour and (b) raspberry flavoured.
§ Mr. Ryder
"Raspberry flavoured" can be used to describe a food only if its flavour comes wholly or mainly from real raspberries. "Raspberry flavour" may be used if the food tastes of raspberries but the flavour does not come mainly from raspberries. The relevant provisions can be found in schedule 7 of the Food Labelling Regulations 1984 and are explained in our free booklet "Look at the Label".
