Include Required Information

Nutritional content labels must include information such as the number of calories, fat, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, sugar, vitamins and minerals.

Double Check Label Eligibility

The minimum types of nutrients that must be included in the ING Table are total energy, total fat, saturated fat, protein, total carbohydrates, sugar and salt (sodium), subject to statutory provisions.
