To ask the Scottish Government how alcohol-free products are defined in Scotland.
The descriptor for alcohol-free products as set out in current UK Government guidance, which applies in Scotland is:
this should only be applied to a drink from which the alcohol has been extracted if it contains no more than 0.05% ABV, and the products should also include the ABV (or state that they contain no alcohol) on the label in order to use the descriptor.
These can be found on the UK Government’s website https://www.gov.uk/
