The notified proposed amendment to the Food Health Regulations (Supreme Decree No. 977/96) contains provisions on the nutritional composition of food and on food advertising, in accordance with Law No. 20.606. It seeks to inform the public of the content of the food it consumes in order to encourage it to avoid unnecessary, excessive intake, which can lead to obesity and related non communicable diseases.

The notified text defines the size of reference amounts customarily consumed, which must be considered when calculating critical nutrient content and applying warning labels to food products. Such reference amounts have been defined in accordance with public health policy, which seeks to reduce the intake of the critical nutrients indicated. While the customarily consumed amount of each food varies greatly, mainly due to differences in nutritional composition and other variables such as eating times, forms of consumption, and the purpose for which the food is intended, it may also provide relevant information on intake and make it possible to estimate exposure to danger with regard to critical nutrients.
