Nutrition Fact Panels
It is important that you select a company fully versed in current Food and Drug Administration (FDA) protocols. At Food Labels we create Nutritional Fact Panels (NFP) based on first-rate analysis. Fact panels communicate important information about the food that consumers eat. Properly created NFP labels ensure that technical terms are simplified and important points are emphasized. Our panels are fully compliant with the Nutritional Labeling and Education Act (NLEA). We’ll use your recipe formulation, package size and label dimensions to determine the appropriate serving size and the percent of daily values.
Our comprehensive fact panel process starts with a review of your product and ingredients to determine what the applicable FDA requirements are. Our experts will evaluate your product for any FDA approved nutrient content claims and any associated product attributes claims.
It’s good practice to be as precise as possible with transparency for your customers. This transparency starts with a nutritional label that is fully compliant and properly formatted. Our internal team has worked with a wide spectrum of products across the CPG industry. Our extensive knowledge coupled with an expedient analytical review means you can rest assured that your product will be ready for market success.
It is important that your labels be compliant with the regulations set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Labels are a critical element to any product on today’s market. Your label not only helps consumers understand the ingredients included in your product, but just as important, defines the compliance of your product with federal regulations. The Nutritional Labeling and Education Act (NLEA) was signed into law in 1990. With the passage of this act, most food requires nutritional labeling. There are four regulatory areas that are required in order to be in compliance with the NLEA. Those are, the Nutrition Fact Panel, Ingredient List, Allergen Statements and Nutrition Content Claims.
Label compliance can be complex and confusing and that’s where Food Label Consulting can assist you. Our team of highly trained experts can quickly and accurately identify, define and label your product ingredients in accordance with current guidelines and regulations.
Companies wanting to add new food additives to a product may need Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval. If FDA approval is warranted, the company will be responsible for providing the FDA with specific information generated from appropriate tests which demonstrate that the product’s additives are safe. Additives used in a product which require FDA approval will need to be verified according to intended uses, unique specifications and existing restrictions. In addition, food-related products must adhere to the FDA’s Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) and their extensive labeling requirements. FDA compliance with food labeling regulations can be an essential component to a successful product or brand launch. Our staff has years of experience in the FDA approval process. We can effectively evaluate your nutritional information for any nutrient content claims and product attribute claims.
Label Process Audits
Label Process Audits are an important part of food safety and quality. Adults are widely used in the food industry for a variety of reasons. It is important that your label accurately defines your product. How effective your label is oftentimes depends on the competency and skills of the auditor. Documentation review during the audit procedure helps confirm compliance with current standards. Using a skilled auditor equates to a complete and accurate label audit certifying that standards are being met and proper transparency is reflected on your product’s label.
Current FDA policies take claims made on a product’s label very seriously. There are three categories of claims that are defined by statute and/or FDA regulations: health claims (including both Authorized and Qualified), nutrient content claims, and structure/function claims. There are legal requirements, regulatory processes and scientific evaluations that underlie label statements. A proper label must adhere to current regulations in an accurate and transparent way. Our team has a mastery of the regulatory framework behind label statements and claims found within the food industry.
