At the beginning of 2019, the current Choices International Criteria Version 2019 have been published. Over the course of last year, we received various questions and comments about the criteria. This has led us to make some improvements. An important correction is on the fiber criterion for fruit juices, which was unintentionally set to 0.75g/100g. This criterion was changed back to the original figure of 0.3g/100g. Additionally, the Choices International Scientific Committee gave an additional explanation on the composition of fruit juices, by specifying that non/low-caloric sweeteners cannot be added to fruit and vegetable juices in order for these products to comply to the criteria.
