A workbook for day-to-day decisions Nutrition labels on various food products must comply with numerous, ever-changing requirements. Items such as meat and poultry products, food packages, and dietary supplements are subject to stringent federal regulations-and the costs of compliance are often significant. The Nutritional Labeling and Education Act of 1990 (NLEA) imposed new mandates for labeling of many packaged food products; still others became subject to a voluntary nutrition labeling program. Following that lead, USDA has imposed parallel labeling requirements. FDA and USDA Nutrition Labeling Guide: Decision Diagrams, Checklists, and Regulations provides hands-on information and guidelines for understanding the latest federal nutrition labeling requirements. This plain English analysis of FDA and FSIS labeling rules contains diagrams and tables and cites specific regulations. Decision diagrams walk the reader through volumes of information and make sense out of complicated regulatory processes. Checklists for managing information for developing specific labels help the reader track regulatory changes and document regulation applicability to company products. The RegFinder index references not only the text, but also provides hundreds of regulatory citations, referenced by topic. FDA and USDA Nutrition Labeling Guide: Decision Diagrams, Checklists, and Regulations will be of interest to food industry personnel responsible for compliance with federal nutritional labeling regulations, food product developers and food technologists. Faculty teaching food laws and regulations and food product development will also find this book of interest.

Consultant and long-time Food and Drug Administration (FDA) food labeling expert James Summers answers the many questions surrounding FDA food labeling regulations and compliance in Food Labeling Compliance Review. Now in its third edition, the manual is a comprehensive food labeling compliance handbook designed to aid in understanding the requirements of the FDA. This reference is a must-have for regulatory officials, industry personnel, and others responsible for assuring that the label and labeling of domestic and imported food products in interstate commerce comply with the requirements of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, as amended. The manual is available in book or searchable CD-ROM formats (or both together if you order the first choice on the right). The text is composed of three essential parts: 1.) Introduction and how-to information, including the outline of a compliance review. 2.) Compliance step-by-step review procedure (in the form of questions and answers) for the food label reviewer to establish the degree to which a product’s label complies with applicable laws and regulations. These sections also provide a basis for developing a label for prospective food products, as well as a foundation for responding to label deviations observed during the review. 3.) Guidance and information for decision making such as ready references, charts, illustrations, regulations, Federal Register indexes and tables of content for related publications. Clearly illustrated with dozens of charts, sample label panels and “Nutrition Facts” boxes, Food Labeling Compliance Review is the practical, no-nonsense tool needed by both the experienced and inexperienced food label reviewer.
