FAQ

01
Can I make my own Nutrition Facts label?

Yes, but it’s important to ensure accuracy and adherence to specific regulatory guidelines and labeling practices. Start by gathering information about the food’s ingredients and their quantities. Also, ensure that you include standard information like serving size, calories, macronutrients (carbohydrates, fats, proteins), vitamins, and minerals. It must also be FDA-compliant and follow local labeling laws and guidelines. using software to assist you might be more helpful and will ensure that your label provides accurate and helpful information.

02
Does the FDA check Nutrition Facts?

Yes, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for overseeing and regulating the accuracy of nutrition facts labels. The FDA sets specific guidelines for labeling requirements which include the format, content, and presentation of food label information. They will take necessary action if the labeling is found to be inaccurate or non-compliant with the established regulations. 

03
What is the new format for FDA Nutrition Facts?
  • Updated Design: The new label has a larger font size for “Calories” and “Serving Size” to make them more prominent. The overall design is more streamlined and emphasizes important information.
  • Added Sugars: “Added Sugars” is now included on the label to distinguish between naturally occurring sugars and those added during processing or preparation.
  • Updated Daily Values: Daily Values (DV) for nutrients like sodium, dietary fiber, and vitamin D have been updated to reflect the latest scientific research.
  • Changes in some nutrients required: Vitamin D and potassium are required on the label. Calcium and iron will continue to be required. Vitamins A and C are no longer required but can be included on a voluntary basis.
  • Nutrient Listings: The amounts of vitamins and minerals are listed in both grams and as a percentage of the Daily Value, making it easier to understand the nutrient content.
  • Dual Column Labels: Some packages that are typically consumed in one or multiple sittings have dual column labels to indicate both “per serving” and “per package” nutritional information.

These changes apply to most packaged foods, with a few exemptions being made for certain small businesses or specialized products.

04
How do you verify Nutrition Facts?

Verifying Nutrition Facts involves several steps to ensure accuracy. Here’s a general process:

  • Recipe Analysis: Start by analyzing the recipe or formulation for your food product. Determine the quantities and specific brands of ingredients used.
  • Nutrient Calculation: Use reliable sources such as food databases or nutrition label software to calculate the nutritional content of each ingredient. Ensure accuracy by cross-referencing multiple sources.
  • Serving Size Determination: Determine the appropriate serving size for your product based on how it is typically consumed. This will be the reference point for the nutritional values listed on the label.
  • Accurate Measurements: Ensure precise measurements of ingredients during the manufacturing process. Use calibrated scales and measuring tools for accuracy.
  • Lab Testing (Optional): For more accurate results, consider sending samples of your product to a laboratory for nutrient analysis. This can be especially useful for complex or unique products.
  • Compliance with Regulations: Ensure your Nutrition Facts label adheres to local labeling laws and guidelines, such as those set by the FDA in the United States. Verify that your label includes all required information and follows the formatting guidelines.
  • Consultation with Experts: Consider consulting with nutritionists, dietitians, or food labeling experts to review your Nutrition Facts label and verify its accuracy.

Remember, accurate nutrient analysis is crucial for providing reliable information to consumers, promoting transparency, and complying with regulatory requirements.
