How is it declared correctly?

What does declaration mean?

If you want to know what you are feeding your pet, you can't avoid looking at the label. The label contains all the secrets about the product, but they need to be understood! And that's the crux of the matter - there are some things hidden there that the average consumer can't understand. We help you become a specialist consumer.

Composition and declaration

In the form of a declaration, the composition gives the pet owner an indication of what ingredients the dog food is made up of. Only the so-called “closed declaration” is required under the Feed Act. In the closed declaration, the feed materials used in a compound feed are grouped together and listed in descending order by weight. These groups include, for example: B. Meat and animal by-products, oils and fats, minerals, grains and sugar. Each manufacturer can choose whether to list all of their ingredients individually (open declaration) or whether to group them together in the legally defined categories (closed declaration). For example, if a feed contains beef meat and liver, this can be declared either as “muscle meat and beef liver” or as “meat and animal by-products”. The only difference is in the way it is named.

How do you declare correctly?

The correct declaration of products depends on the applicable regulations and laws of the respective country. This involves general guidelines such as product name, ingredients, net filling quantity, allergens, shelf life and much more.

What is an open declaration?

An open declaration means that the manufacturer discloses detailed information about the ingredients and their proportions. All components of the product are listed, including possible allergenic substances or other ingredients that may be relevant to certain consumers. An open declaration allows consumers to make an informed decision, taking into account their individual needs or preferences.

What is a closed declaration?

A closed declaration, on the other hand, reveals less information about the exact ingredients. The information on the label or packaging may be more general or less specific. Not all ingredients may be listed and the exact proportions may remain unclear. This can make it difficult for consumers to evaluate or select the product, especially if they have specific needs or concerns. There are no percentages of the quantitative composition. Conclusions can be drawn based solely on the order of the components. Only the advertised ingredients - also known as claims - have to be stated with a percentage by weight. The claims The claims and claims make it possible to see on the front label how much of the advertised raw material is contained in the food. Most of the time “with” is advertised, e.g. B. with chicken, with carrot, with spinach. This means that at least 4% of this raw material is contained in the feed. For example, it is advertised on the front: Rich in insects. Then the exact weight percentage must be stated on the back label.
