ProductVision’s seamlessly integrated Nutritional Labeling Module automatically creates food nutrition labels and ingredient declarations which comply with the current 2016 U.S. NLEA regulations, as well as current and pending regulations for Canadian and European Union labels. This greatly reduces the time required to create the product label and guarantees consistency with the recipe.
Choose From Many Pre-Programmed Label Formats
The Nutritional Labeling Module includes all common label formats that you may need including:
Dual declaration labels (cereal/milk, mix/prepared) plus several EU and Canadian label formats
These labels meet all of the formatting requirements for fonts, point size, etc. You can choose to add or subtract specific nutrients on the facts panel for claims maintenance.
Calculations are Automatically Performed
The Nutritional Labeling Module calculates and prints the proper nutrient values and percentage of daily values (US label) based upon the entered serving size. It also applies the specific rounding rules for each nutrition value, as specified in the regulations, and automatically moves nutrients that are “not a significant source”.
Flexible Ingredient Declarations
The program allows you to specify an unlimited number of ingredient descriptions for use on the ingredient declaration. This is useful for country, language, and/or application specific reasons. The Nutritional Labeling Module also can be tailored to create any number of independent ingredient declarations, using these ingredient descriptions. Similar components are automatically grouped according to description and placed in the proper order in the declaration. System-generated ingredient declarations may be edited to account for special circumstances or company-specific standards.
Accounts for Special Requirements
The Nutritional Labeling Module allows you to group components parenthetically at both the raw material and intermediate formula level. This is useful if an ingredient is made up of components that you want to show together in the proper place on the declaration, such as “Enriched Flour (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Iron, and Riboflavin)”. Ingredients may be grouped under a single term, with user-defined grouping rules (“Contains: Vegetable Oils” for Corn Oil, Canola Oil, etc.). Allergens can be highlighted, as required, such as “Contains: Milk, Egg, Peanuts”. The Nutritional Labeling Module will automatically reorder ingredients to account for water reconstitution of dehydrated ingredients. Ingredient components can be “hidden” when they exist below preset levels. For EU labels, the program allows formula specific Quid declarations.
