National label standards for pre-packaged food
1 Scope
This standard applies to the description and explanation of the nutrition
information on pre-packaged food nutrition labels.

2.4 Core nutrients
The core nutrients in nutrition labels include protein, fat, carbohydrates and
sodium.
2.5 Nutrition ingredient table
It refers to the normative table indicated the food nutrition ingredient name,
content, AND the percentage of the nutrient reference value (NRV).
2.6 Nutrient reference value (NRV)
It is dedicated to food nutrition labels, which is used to compare the reference
values of the food nutrition ingredient content.
2.7 Nutrition claims
It refers to the description and statement of the food nutrition characteristics,
such as energy levels and protein levels. Nutrition claims include content
claims and comparison claims.
2.7.1 Content claim
It refers to the claim used to describe the energy or nutrient content in food.
The terms of claim include “Yes”, “High”, “Low” or “None”, etc.
2.7.2 Comparison claim
It refers to the claim after comparing with the nutrition ingredient content or
energy value of the similar foods as familiar by the consumer. The terms of
claim include “increase” and “decrease”, etc.
2.8 Nutrition ingredient function claim
It refers to the claim that a certain nutrition ingredient can sustain the body's
normal growth, development and normal physiological function.
2.9 Round-off interval
It refers to the minimum value unit of the round-off value.
2.10 Food part
It refers to the remaining part by deducting the non-edible part from the net
content of the pre-packaged food.
3 Basic requirements
3.1 Any nutrition information as indicated on the nutrition label of the
pre-packaged food shall be true and objective; it is not allowed to indicate false
information, AND it shall not exaggerate the nutrition function or other function
of the product.
5 Optional indication content
5.1 In addition to the aforementioned mandatory indication contents, in the
nutrition ingredient table, it may also indicate the other ingredients in Table 1.
5.2 When the content of a certain nutrition ingredient is in accordance with the
content requirements and the restrictive conditions in Table C.1, it may conduct

content of a certain nutrition ingredient is in accordance with the requirements
and conditions of Table C.3, it may conduct the comparison claims against this
ingredient, as shown in Table C.3. When the content of a certain nutrition
ingredient complies with the requirements of both the content claim and the

otherwise use only the content claim. As for the synonyms of the content claim
and comparison claim, SEE Table C.2 and Table C.4.
5.3 When the content of a certain nutrition ingredient is in accordance with the
requirements and conditions of the nutrition claim or comparison claim, it may
use the corresponding one or more nutrition ingredient function claim standard
terms in the Appendix D. It shall not conduct deletion, addition, and merging of
any forms against the function claim terms.
6 Expression of nutrition ingredients
6.1 The content of energy and nutrition ingredient in the pre-packaged food
shall be expressed in terms of the specific values per 100 grams (g) and/or per
100 millimeters (mL) and/or per edible part of each food. When indicated in
serving, it shall indicate the quantity of each serving of food. The size of
serving may be specified in accordance with the food characteristics or the
recommended amount.
6.2 The name and sequence, indication unit, round-off interval, and “0” limit
value of the nutrition ingredient of either mandatory or optional nature in the
nutrition ingredient table shall comply with the requirements of Table 1. When a
certain nutrition ingredient is not indicated, MOVE up sequentially.
6.3 In case of indication of the other nutrition ingredients than those in Table 1
as allowed to be enhanced by GB 14880 and the announcement of the
Ministry of Health, the order of the ingredients shall be after the nutrients as
listed in Table 1.
Appendix A
Food label nutrient reference value (NRV) and its use
A.1 Food label nutrient reference value (NRV)
The specified energy and the reference values for the 32 nutrition ingredients
are as shown in Table A.1.
Table A.1 Nutrient reference value (NRV)
Nutrition ingredient NRV Nutrition ingredient NRV
Energy a 8400 kJ Folic acid 400 µg DFE
Protein 60 g Pantothenic acid 5 mg
Fat ≤ 60 g Biotin 30 µg
Saturated fatty acids ≤ 20 g Choline 450 mg
Cholesterol ≤ 300 mg Calcium 800 mg
Carbohydrate 300 g Phosphorus 700 mg
dietary fiber 25 g Potassium 2000 mg
Vitamin A 800 µg RE Sodium 2000 mg

a Energy equals to 2000 kcal; AND the percentage of the energy supply from the protein, fat and
carbohydrates in the total energy are respectively 13%, 27%, and 60%.
A.2 Purpose and method of use
It is used to compare and describe the content of energy or nutrition ingredient;
AND when it is indicated with the nutrition claim and 0 value, it is used as the
standard reference value.
The method of use is the percentage of nutrition ingredient content in the
nutrient reference value (NRV); AND the round-off interval of the designated
NRV% is 1, such as 1%, 5%, and 16%, etc.
A.3 Calculations
The percentage of nutrition ingredient content in the nutrient reference value
(NRV) is calculated using the equation (A.1).
Appendix B
Nutrition label format
