Protection of Public Health (Food) (Labeling of pre-packaged food without gluten) 5783-2022; (5 page(s), in Hebrew)

Now proposed regulations named "Protection of Public Health (Food) (Labeling of pre-packaged food without gluten) 5783-2022" announced by the Israel Ministry of Health. This draft will replace previous regulations named "Public Health Regulations (Food) (Gluten Labeling), 5756-1996". It will apply to labeling food that does not contain gluten and will require marking with the words 'gluten-free' or 'inherently gluten-free', as required by the draft.

These new regulations are based on and similar to the European Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 on the provision of food information to consumers.

This draft is part of a broader legislation that regulates the labeling requirements of pre-packaged food that causes allergy or intolerance, which will be notified separately.
