In Canada, the claims are found on many food products. Health Canada’s regulations must be followed in food service industry. Restaurants promote their healthier menu fare using the Specific claims. There are two types of nutrition claims on foods: nutrient content claims and health claims. These claims must also follow certain rules from Health Canada to make sure that they are consistent and not misleading.
Nutrient content claims- are the specific claims about a menu item's nutrient content and they explain the amount of a nutrient in a food. For example, low fat or high fiber. A good source of iron is also an example of a nutrient content claim.
Health claims- are the claims about the relationship between a nutrient or food and a disease or health condition and make the statements about the helpful effects of a certain food consumed within a healthy diet on a person's health. For example, a dish that is low in fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol might be able to carry a claim about how diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease. They may initially appear on the menu in simple terms, such as heart healthy. Further information about the claim should be available somewhere on the menu or in other labeling, for example, with accompanying nutrition information that must be provided on request. A healthy diet containing foods high in potassium and low in sodium may reduce risk of high blood pressure, a risk factor for stroke and heart disease is a health claim.
