One of the areas of greatest concern to the food manufacturer about the Nutritional Labeling and Education Act (NLEA) has been the placement of the vast quantity of information on the food label. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has defined and provided for the proper use of nutrient content claims. This encourages the use of truthful statements, while discouraging misleading information about dietary information.
In its original rulings, Food and Drug Administration issued very specific directions as to placement and type. This direction included topics such as:
Certified Laboratories, Inc. has the expertise to provide you with all of the information required for accurate label claims and nutritional information.
- Abbreviated linear format
- Typesetting rules
- Standard format option
- Type size and letter style for small packages
- Multi-lingual nutritional fact boxes
