Many types of claims are made about foods on labels including health and nutrition, how a food is produced and where it has come from. Understanding these claims helps you choose foods that are suited to your needs.

While health and nutrition claims are subject to the Food Standards Code, all claims on a food label are enforceable under Australian Consumer Law.
