Synonym(s)dietary food; dietary use; food for dietary use; food for special dietary use; special dietary food 
Scope noteThis term is for CLASSIFICATION ONLY; DO NOT USE term in indexing. Use a more precise narrower term. 
Description 
Renamed from *FOOD FOR SPECIAL DIETARY USE* [LanguaL 2008]. These descriptors are used either for foods intended for special dietary use as defined in 21 CFR 105 or for foods that have special characteristics indicated in the name or labeling. Such claims would include 'low calorie', 'low cholesterol', 'diet' or 'dietetic', etc. Prior to february 1992, this category of descriptors was limited solely to food for adult humans. The category is now used in conjunction with any appropriate *CONSUMER GROUP* descriptor(s), for example, 'low sugar baby food' would be indexed by *INFANT OR TODDLER FOOD* as well as by *LOW SUGARS FOOD*.
