This week, you looked at food labels and how they should appear on packaging. Next week, you will look at energy from food and how sweeteners are used in our food.
You should now be able to understand:
- what the regulations are for food labelling
- how food is analysed and the food tables
- the traffic-light system for food labelling
- the claims made on packaging.
You are now half way through the course. The Open University would really appreciate your feedback and suggestions for future improvement in our optional, which you will also have an opportunity to complete at the end of Week 8. Participation will be completely confidential and we will not pass on your details to others.
You can now go to Week 5.
