Food Allergy Labels in Venezuela
The food allergy label articles points its focus to Venezuela, to keep you informed of what allergens must be expressed on food labels. Our previous food allergy label articles focused on USA, EU, Japan,Canada, Australia and New Zealand so be sure to have a look if you are travelling to one of these regions.
Following most other countries, food labels in Venezuela must state any of the following antigens; egg, fish, crustacean, nuts, milk, soybean and processed grain products containing grain gluten (such as wheat, barley etc.). Precautionary statements are also allowed, so you may see labels such as "May contain nuts".
