If only healthy nutrition was so easy.
Thanks to the Nutri-Score, it soon can be! The small label, that looks like a traffic light, is already in use since 2017 in France to provide a fast overview of the nutritional value of food products. With the help of letters (A to E) and colours (green to red), the ingredients are being rated to give information about their nutritional score. In the rating, it is evaluated how many favourable (e.g. proteins) and how many unfavourable (e.g. saturated fatty acids) nutritional elements the product contains. Through that, the focus is taken away from only the calories and instead gets layed on the actual components of the food. With that, consumers don’t have to draw their own, and maybe even wrong, conclusions anymore.
2020 also in Germany.
Until now, the label was not allowed in Germany. On August 19th 2020, a regulation of the German Federal Cabinet was enforced to introduced the Nutri-Score to the German market until autumn of this year – although only voluntary. An obligation for the use can only be caused by the EU parliament. 90 percent of the people in a survey of the BMEL claimed, that the label is easy to understand and intuitive.
