Food Labels

  • Ernest R. Vieira
Part of the Food Science Texts Series book series (FSTS)


All labels associated with foods should be read at the time of procuring any food, because the contents of labels consist of important criteria for the selection of foods. These include basic information; a list of ingredients; in some cases, quality grades; nutritional information; shelf life data; and other important information. Authority for the regulation of food labels lies with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). See Chapter 6 for more on the FDA.
