Nutrient profiling separates foods into different categories and certain claims that can be made about the food are dependent on the score that a food might receive. The more negative nutrients, the lower the score. Some nutrient claims such as glycaemic index, glycaemic load and diet claims are dependent on the nutrient profiling score for the particular food. If you want to make a health claim your food must fit within the nutrient profile scoring criteria.
What category does your food fit into? What are V Points and P Points and F Points? What does it then mean for your labelling when using these particular points in your final score calculation – and can you use them in all products?
Where is all of this information in the Food Standards Code – bits of information are in multiple areas of the Food Standards Code. This course pulls it all together for you.
