servings per container
We need them to...
compare food products
compare similar products and choose what's better for you
Preferred:
fibre, calcium, vitamins, iron
Not too much of:
Eg:
The Canadian Food
Inspection Association
control imported foods (ensure there are food labels)
check foods that are exported from Canada (food labels, legal sources, proper ingredients, etc)
responsible for any food recalls (undeclared ingredients, poisoning, bad bacteria contamination, etc)
enforce acts & regulations of food standard in Canada
sodium, sugar, artificial flavours
Bad Food Labels
undeclared ingredients (allergens, restrictions, etc)
labels don't have all of the requirements
completely false statements / information on label
1.General Unhealthiness
What if it slips through inspection?
What if a country's food labelling enforcement is not efficient?
Is it necessary?
Who is responsible for monitoring food labels?
What are some common cases of bad food labels?
low nutritional values
high in fat, sodium, sugar, etc -> obesity, diabetes, etc
sickness all the time (allergic reactions, lactose-intolerance, etc)
chemicals in body system
2.
Foodborne Sicknesses
Ciguatera Poisoning
Salmonellosis
Norovirus contamination
Hemorraghic Colitis
must be on all food products
found on packaging (boxes, plastic wrap, etc)
Requirements:
bilingual
country of origin
manufacturer/business
date markings (best before, man. date)
common name
ingredients/allergens
nutrition label
legible
On a federal/national scale, the following will happen:
healthcare costs go up
Canada: raised tax rates to pay for government-covered healthcare
US: citizens losing more money to treat foodborne health problems
In conclusion, proper food labelling doesn’t only affect health, but can impact economy and our everyday lives. It is crucial that food labelling and other food laws are enforced.
what's going to
happen on a national scale?
weakened economy
Canada: tax rates may get too high for new immigrants -> they would move away
US: citizens in more & more debt -> can't pay it off ->
less stable economy
the end!
