Workshop Description: 

Nutrition labelling is mandatory for most prepackaged foods, including bulk, foodservice and foods for further manufacture. Learn how to design a Nutrition Facts table (NFt) in compliance with the current regulations and new Health Canada regulatory amendments to nutrition labelling. This course provides a solid overview of Canadian nutrition labelling, nutrient content claims and health claims.

Workshop Benefits: 

At the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Identify the requirements for nutrition labelling, exemptions, and declaration of core nutrition and additional information
  • Describe various Nutrition Facts table formats and their components: serving size, reference amounts, reference standards, recommended daily intake, weighted recommended nutrient intakes, daily values and tolerances for nutrient declarations
  • Discuss how nutrient values are calculated and rounded
  • Discuss Available Display Surface (ADS) and its influence on NFt formatting, location and orientation
  • Differentiate between the use of databases versus wet-lab testing
  • Discuss various nutrient content and health claims
  • Discuss how ingredient labelling, label claims and advertising affect the presentation of an NFt
  • Determine what NFt formats are eligible to be used for the food and its package
