IFT Food and Nutrition Labeling Short Course

Labeling Requirements & Implications for Foods Marketed in the United States
Labeling a food product properly is as important to its legal compliance as manufacturing.  Enhance your understanding of the regulations affecting the labeling of food products.  Examine the legal naming of a food product, listing its ingredients (such as flavors), presenting its nutritional details, and making claims related to nutrient content, health effects, and production method.

  • “All of the instructors were true experts in their fields and excellent presenters.  Thanks for a terrific course!"
