Obligation of all food producers is to ensure a high level of consumer protection, which means that food must be produced as safe and
properly declared and ensure that the consumers receive all relevant information about the products they buy. From December 2016 in the European Union food have to be labelled with nutrition data. Since the actual nutritional value of food can vary in relation to the declared value, it is important to define and specify the average nutritional value of the product. The average value is the quantity that best represents the amount of nutrients contained in food, including all factors that cause deviations from the true value. In most countries there is no clear definition of acceptable tolerances for nutritional values of food in relation to the analytical values in the appropriate regulations of national guidelines. At the end of 2012th European Commission prepared the guide for foods and food supplements to apply the uniform criteria for acceptable tolerances, which has been provided in the new Regulation (EU) No. 1169/2011. Through established tolerances the new guide aims to provide accurate information to consumers concerning the quality of food and to help food manufacturers and competent institutions during the official
control work.
This paper shows on the one hand some examples of acceptable tolerances for nutritional values on food labelling in several countries,
with the special emphasis on those in the European Union, on the other hand presents research work conducted in some countries related to conformity of the real nutritional value with those listed on the label, taking into account the allowed tolerance by individual markets
