Does Korea have guidance regarding what type of healthfulness claims can be made? For example, "low/lower sodium"? Do we know if consumers are using FOP data to make their decisions or perhaps they rely on advertising too (where health-related claims would be more general - 25% lower in sodium for soup only to read the FOP where the original is 1000 mg of sodium/8 oz serving so the "lower" sodium is 750 mg which is still a very high sodium for an 8 oz serving in a daily meal. (As you might guess, I'm a BIG nutritional label reader with a primary focus on sodium.)
