Ingredient statements (sometimes also called ingredient lists) are mandatory on almost all food, beverage, cosmetic, and personal care products. Each country has its own set of regulations surrounding these different items that can be tricky to keep track of due to the vast number of these regulations, many of which are ever-changing. For example: in 2017 Canadian regulations had many overhauls for food labeling, one of which was a change to how sugars-based ingredients should be grouped for ingredient statements. “In a prepackaged product, each sugars-based ingredient must be grouped after the term “Sugars” [B.01.008.3(1), FDR].” ProductVision provides out-of-the-box functionality to assist in grouping these items that requires only up-front setup so that your sugars-based ingredients will group together per Canadian regulations.
How can ProductVision help?
The ProductVision Nutrition Labeling (NL) Ingredient Statement Module can automate the process for creating these listings by using out-of-the-box tools to generate a listing based on your formulas’ compositions by breaking components down to the level that you wish to report, including the capability to drill down to all levels of purchased resources and intermediate/WIP components.
ProductVision’s tools for generating ingredient statements can help you group like items under the same name or as a list of ingredients, show components in parenthetical format, generate a less than 2% statement, show allergens, override listings to undeclare items that are not required to be reported, and more. ProductVision also has the capability to create custom events that can automate other processes for ingredient listings based on customer requirements, such as listing fragrance allergens and adding footnotes based on specific ingredients. By using ProductVision you will spend less time creating manual statements and cut down on grammar and spelling mistakes that can be attributed to human error.
