What do we check on the food label
When you work with QualDes, we will compare your food labelling to the recipe to make sure it is correct. This also involves checking the nutritional panel and ingredient listing. This means they will be in the correct format. It is also important to call the ingredients by the correct name. Also, they need to be in descending (largest to smallest amount). QualDes does much of this work on our nutrition calculator program. This program uses data from all over the world to achieve accurate results.
Your Nutritional Claims need to also meet The Food Code. We spend time checking this and advising of changes. These changes will make your food label legal. This is important as an incorrect food label can mean a Product Recall. This is not only expensive but damaging to your Brand.
Allergens are now a food safety issue. Many recalls these days are because of undeclared allergens. This often occurs as some ingredients will have “hidden” allergens. We can assist you with other aspects of food labelling including health claims, advisory and warning declarations, regulatory compliance of ingredients, country of origin labelling, net weights and coding, halal and kosher requirements, and more.
