Content revision on Food Operators' Websites

We offer a comprehensive website audit service for your food operator website, ensuring compliance with Regulation 1169/2011 and other relevant regulations. We guarantee that the online food information you provide is legal and accurate.

At LexSupplements, we provide a comprehensive auditing service for food operators' websites to review the content and advertising of food products presented online.

The food information provided on websites is subject to the same regulations and controls as the labeling of food supplements. Generally, Regulation 1169/2011 on the provision of food information to consumers, Royal Decree 1487/2009 on dietary supplements, and Regulation 1924/2006 on nutrition and health claims apply.

Given that websites allow much more extensive food information than product labels, it is crucial for food operators to ensure the information they provide complies with health legislation. Special attention must be given to health claims made on websites to ensure they are permitted and justified under Regulation 1924/2006. All generic health claims must be supported by specific authorized health claims for one of the product's ingredients.

Therefore, the information provided to consumers through food operators' websites must meet the minimum requirements established in Regulation 1169/2011, and specifically, it must include:

  1. The name under which the product is sold, which must include the mention: "Food supplement".
  2. The list of ingredients.
  3. The names of the categories of nutrients or substances that characterize the product, or an indication of the nature of these nutrients or substances, as well as the daily amount provided.
  4. The recommended daily dose of the product.
  5. The relevant warnings.
  6. The storage conditions.
  7. The net quantity of the product.
  8. The best-before consumption date.
  9. The responsible entity of the marketing of the product.
  10. Allergens, if the product contains any.

Failure to comply with the applicable regulations, whether due to missing mandatory mentions or providing information beyond permitted limits, can result in administrative sanctions, which may vary depending on the extent and severity of the violations.
