Taiwan’s regulators plan to revise food labelling requirements in July after a period of public consultation.

According to the Chemlinked Food Portal, the new rules will require “food for special medical purposes​” to be labelled along the lines of “not suitable for consumption by people in good health, and should be consumed under the guidance of doctors or dieticians​”.

Food containing protein to provide basic energy and nutrients for patients will no longer be be required to state: “This product should not be consumed alone for balanced nutrition.​” 

And low-sodium table salt and soy sauce not intended for not intended for medical purposes will no longer be regarded or labelled as such.
