Abstract

Just a cursory glance at some food packages around the world, including the UK, and some of the recent recommendations about food labelling, really do make you wonder for whom the labelling is intended. I have always worked on the assumption that the nutrition information on packets was for those men and women who were interested in what their food contained. It is not intended for trained dietitians or professors of nutrition, not for enforcement authorities. Neither is it intended for idiots.
