Mexico alters label laws

This article was originally published in Foodnews

MEXICO has announced changes to labelling requirements on beverage imports which come into effect in 2011. As of 1 January 2011, 'Non-alcoholic beverage' will be defined as any liquid substance which provides nutrients with less than 2% of alcohol volume. The current definition is that alcohol volume must be less than 0.5%. Also, the definition of 'dietary fiber' is changed to a modified version of the CODEX definition on its nutrient labelling guidelines. Two new nutritional terms are included - 'Daily recommended intake (IDR)' and 'Daily suggested intake (IDS)', which are both calculated similarly to the US Recommended Dietary Allowance.
