Nutrition labelling is mandatory for most prepackaged foods, including bulk, foodservice and foods for further manufacture. Many retail and food service companies driven by consumer demands are voluntarily providing nutrition information where such information is exempt under the law. Learn how to present nutrition information when it is mandatory and how to do so voluntarily. This course provides a solid overview of Canadian nutrition labelling, nutrient content claims and health claims. At the end of the program, 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 (NFT) formats and their components: serving size, reference amounts, reference standards, recommended daily intake, weighted recommended nutrient intakes, daily values, tolerances for nutrient declarations

Understand Available Display Surface (ADS) and its influence on NFT formatting, location and orientation
Differentiate between the use of databases versus wet-lab testing
