National beer and imports sold in Brazil will have, in their labels, clearer specifications on the ingredients used in their manufacture.
This measure is predicted in normative instructions from the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Husbandry and Supply (Mapa), which is published in the current Official Unity Diary (16).
Companies will have a period of one year to adapt to the new rules provided in the Map instructions.
The instruction sets out the obligation to include, in a clear, precise and luxurious manner, on beer labels, information that shows the ingredients that make up the product, replacing the generic term cereal in malt or malt by citing the names of cereals and non-products. raw materials are effectively used in addition to beer.
In addition, regulations stipulate that sugar cane used in brewing must be labeled with the name of the original plant species, for example, sugar cane.
