We prove that the Large Deviation Principle holds for the distribution of the particle number density (the Kac distribution) whenever the free energy density exists in the thermodynamic limit. We use this result to give a new proof of the Large Deviation Principle for the Kac distribution of the free Boson gas. In the case of mean-field models, non-convex rate functions can arise; this is illustrated in a model previously studied by E.B. Davies.
