Description:

IDFA is pleased to present its “Introduction to Dairy Product Labeling” webinar. This two-session training opportunity will provide you and your staff with the essential information you need to produce compliant and effective labels for your products. It will also provide important details on FDA’s new regulations revising the nutrition facts label and food serving sizes. The webinar is divided into two sessions, “Labeling 101” and “New Nutrition Labeling Regulations and Claims”.

Dairy company staff must know the specific requirements of labeling dairy foods to avoid the waste and possible regulatory enforcement actions that result from mislabeling. Labeling claims also create new opportunities to market your products and drive sales.

Session 1: Labeling 101

This session will give you a general overview of dairy labeling regulations. It will provide the history and jurisdiction for labeling regulations; requirements for the statement of identity, including flavor labeling and net quantity of contents statements; and ingredient declarations, including allergens and other labeling terms, such as Grade A, Kosher, and the Real Seal. We will also cover lactose free, gluten free and natural claims.

Session 2: New Nutrition Labeling Regulations and Claims

This session will cover the basics of nutrition labeling based on FDA’s new regulations, including various nutrition facts formats, new dual column labeling, and revisions to the required and voluntary nutrients. We will explain the changes for declaring added sugars and dietary fiber. We will also review how to determine revised serving sizes ice cream, yogurt and some beverages. An overview of marketing claims that include nutrient content claims such as reduced sugar, lower sodium and high protein will be addressed.
