At present, 80% of food products have ‘traffic light’ tags on them, said Dr Behrouz Jannat, director general for quality control at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). “Food labels with information indicating how much fat, salt, sugar and trans fat an item contains will be put on the remaining 20% by the end of the first half of the current year (started March 21),” IRNA quoted him as saying. On how the color-coding system would work, he said, it will make it easier for consumers to choose healthier options by indicating a warning on the amount a consumer should take.
