"The net weight of an object disregards the weight (mass) of any element not intrinsic to the object itself.

For example, when buying a cake, the net weight disregards the weight of any packaging."

If you look on Google, you'll see that it only turns up in conjunction with 'net weight' on a tiny number of sites - none of which were originally written in English. http://tinyurl.com/2oauc6
On the other hand, there are literally thousands of food-related sites which use 'net weight'.

However, I'm not at all sure about it. Hence the very low confidence. Perhaps someone else will have a more constructive suggestion.

"The indication of the following particulars is compulsory on the labeling of foodstuffs:

the name under which the foodstuff is sold
the list of ingredients, in descending order of weight. Important derogations include compound ingredients, added water/concentrated foods, cheese (see art. 6 of 2000/13/EC). The following ingredients require a specific statement on the label: GMO’s , packaging gases (Directive 94/54/EC) / sweeteners / aspartame & polyols (Directive 96/21/EC) / quinine & caffeine (Directive 2002/67/EC)
the quantity of certain ingredients or categories of ingredients (QUID) (see art. 7 of 2000/13/EC)
the net quantity of prepackaged foodstuffs expressed in metric units (liter, centiliter, milliliter, kilogram or gram). A small "e" on the label may be used to guarantee that the actual content corresponds to the quantity indicated."

And I've had a look at some of the things in my kitchen - the 'e' often comes after the net quantity e.g. 150ml e
