In Japan, food products are regulated by the Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare (MHLW) and the Consumer Affairs Agency (CAA) under the Food Sanitation Act, the Food Labeling Act, and the Health Promotion Law. Health foods are generally referred to as "foods with health claims" and are classified into multiple categories.
