The country has invented a new product labeling.
More than half of the Russian deaths associated with malnutrition.
“About 63% of deaths in Russia are connected with the alimentary-dependent diseases (diseases associated with food – ed.), the prevalence of obesity among women in 2-2,5 times higher than among men,” – said in the message.
The office noted that the solution may be to inform consumers about the composition of the products. To this end, the CPS came up with a new labelling – a “Traffic light”. Red color is designed for products with a high content of salt, sugar and fatty acids, yellow – for products with an average content of these substances, and green – low.
“Voluntary labeling “Traffic light” allows the user to make your diet more balanced, thereby increasing the quality and length of life of the population of our country,” – said in Rospotrebnadzor.
