  • Preparing and properly declaring a list of ingredients is one of the most challenging requirements in food labelling. Are you confident in the regulatory compliance of your existing or new ingredient listing? This program focuses on the requirements of Food and Drug Regulations that govern all foods and beverages sold in Canada. At the end of the program, you will be able to:

    • Identify the foods that are exempt from ingredient listings
    • Explain the basics of ingredient labelling, (e.g. typeface, type height, location), and generate presentation options
    • Understand nomenclature (e.g. common names, class names, collective names)
    • Interpret component declarations and exemptions
    • Define food additives and how these are specially regulated
    • Understand how Interim Market Authorizations (IMAs) and Market Authorizations (MAs) influence compliance
    • Understand what CFIA and Health Canada define as processing aids and incidental additives
    • Appreciate rules governing ingredient omissions and substitutions
    • Discuss the influence of ingredients on nutrition labelling
    • Describe CFIA’s Guidelines for Highlighted Ingredients and Flavours
    • Describe how label claims and statements affect the list of ingredients (i.e. no preservatives), and how the ingredients may influence label claims themselves (i.e. “natural”)
