Nutritional analysis of products forms a crucial part of any food manufacture’s systems. This course will give an insight in the methodology involved in generating the data for nutritional label information as well as the tolerances for the nutritional declarations and will form a good introduction to those new to food labelling. With the European Food Information to Consumers Regulation No 1169/2011 (FIC) on the provision of food information to consumers bringing together EU rules on general food labelling and nutrition labelling into one piece of legislation, the course will aid in an understanding of nutrients to be labelled, and tolerances.
Who should attend?
Managers, NPD Technologist and Food Technologist responsible for generating and monitoring of new and existing nutritional label information.
The course will introduce delegates to the methods involved in producing the data for nutritional labelling (Full Nutritional Analysis). Methodology for all the major nutrients will be covered explaining the bench work involved and the calculations. This will lead into a look at the tolerances for the nutritional declarations for food labelling. The final part of the course will look
at the uncertainty of nutritional methods covering why uncertainty exists, what level of uncertainty to expect as well as ways to reduce uncertainty.
