If you are selling packaged food products, you will need to include a nutrition facts label on the packaging. This label must include information on the product’s calorie content, as well as its fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrate, dietary fiber, and sugar content.

What are the steps to creating a nutrition facts label?

1. Calculate the nutritional value of your product:

To calculate the nutritional value of your product, you will need to gather information on the ingredients used and their proportion in the final product. This can be done by weighing each ingredient and calculating its nutritional content per 100 grams. Once you have this information, you can calculate the total nutritional content of your product using a simple formula.

To make things easy for you, Food Label Maker automatically calculates the nutritional value of each ingredient of your recipe when you enter the product’s name and serving size. In addition, you can hire one of our experts to help you create your nutrition facts label.

2. Follow the rules and regulations of food labeling:

When creating a nutrition facts label, it is important to follow the country’s rules and regulations for food labeling. This will ensure that the label is accurate and compliant with food labeling laws.
