Consumers are increasingly interested in the information appearing on food labels.

They have also become more interested in their diet, its relationship to health, the composition of foodstuffs that they are selecting, as well as its impact on the environment.

All this has led to the proliferation of the number and type of claims appearing on the labels of foodstuffs.
