LabelCalc Works in 4 Easy Steps to Get FDA Compliant Nutrition Labels

With LabelCalc, you’ll have everything you need to make your food product ready for retail. We provide not only your nutrition facts panel — complete with allergen and ingredient statements — but also a comprehensive nutrition analysis report, making you FDA-compliant in an instant.

Add your serving size and servings per container. Not sure what your serving size is? Be sure to use our two serving size assistance tools built-in to the software or checkout our FDA Resource Center for even further assistance.

Our system auto-flags for the top 8 allergens which are required to be reported on an FDA label. Any present allergens will be pre-filled into your Contains Statement. Your Ingredient Statement will be pre-filled and organized in descending order by weight (required formatting by the FDA).

The last step of the process is to select the format of the nutrition label that is best for your packaging, download it, and start printing!

“LabelCalc is very fast, accurate and easy to use. It’s a huge improvement over our previous CD, which was extremely time-consuming. LabelCalc’s customer service is exceptional in the food industry.”

Search from three Ingredient Databases

 

  1. Standard Database: this is sourced directly from the USDA. Our standard database will include all sorts of generic food items such as egg, milk, butter, meats, produce, etc. With over 300,000 ingredients, It is a great place to start your search!
  2. Branded Ingredient Database: This 3rd party database is filled with over 200,000 different branded items. You can search for your product by brand name or item type.
  3. My Ingredients & Sub-Recipes Database: This is your own personal database. You can add your own ingredients (called external ingredients) or add a ‘mini’ recipe that is used in the final product (called sub-recipes).

Auto Allergen flagging for FDA compliance

The FDA requires all 8 major food allergens (wheat, soy, egg, milk, tree nut, peanut, fish and shellfish) be listed on your packaging.

Our intuitive Allergen-flagging feature does all of the work for you. As you build your recipes, all ingredients are reviewed, and automatically flagged. If an Allergen is found, LabelCalc will automatically create your FDA compliant Allergen statement.
