Declaring Voluntary Nutrients on Your Nutrition Facts Label
Displaying voluntary nutrients on your Nutrition Facts label can serve a variety of purposes: helping consumers make more informed decisions, substantiating nutrient content claims, and advertising food fortifications. However, the regulations governing voluntary nutrients differ slightly from those governing mandatory nutrients, which are those required by NLEA labeling.
During this webinar, we go over the differences between voluntary and mandatory nutrients, how they are addressed in the regulations, and how to display them on Nutrition Facts labels using the Genesis R&D Food Formulation & Labeling Software, and more.
