P1049 - Carbohydrate and sugar claims on alcoholic beverages

The purpose of this proposal is to clarify the Food Standards Code with respect to claims about carbohydrate content and the components of carbohydrate (such as sugar) in relation to alcoholic beverages.

Administrative Assessment Report - 17 August 2018 (pdf 84kb) | (word 46kb)

For background information please see the Technical Assessment.

Given the relationship between P1049 and FSANZ's work on energy labelling of alcoholic beverages​, work on P1049 has been temporarily paused to allow us to consider alignment of any potential alcohol labelling changes. We expect to recommence work early in 2022.
