Food Regulations & Laws
According to the FDA, Beverage labels and food labels must have a custom label on the product container to tell consumers what the food is. Not only that, but it must also have a ingredient list, and nutrition facts panel.
Food labels tell lots of valuable information to consumers. Some of the four main pieces of information a food label will contain are the expiration date label, ingredients list, nutrition facts, and daily value. The FDA has even made a Food label guide so that food and beverage companies can correctly label their food products.
Food Date Labels & Expiration Dates
Many food labels will have a sell by, use by, best if used by, or other similar wording. We go into detail more on these date labels here.
A date label tells the consumer when a food goes bad, or when it is the best time to eat it.
Food labels provide more information than just nutrition facts, they also contain information on what is inside the food you are eating. The labels also tell you what country the food came from, if the food is organic, and sometimes health claims. The first ingredient in the list Is what the food has most of in it, or has the most weight, and so forth on. This means the first ingredient has the most weight, and the last ingredient has the least weight.
Nutrition Fact Labels
A nutrition facts label is required on most packaged foods and beverages.
The nutrition facts label on your favorite food product or beverage tells you that it has vitamin and minerals. So this means that the food is healthy, right? Not exactly, because what if the food or drink is overloaded with sugar?
Reading nutrition labels the correct way is not as easy as may think. This is why the FDA has even created a guide to help people read nutrition fact labels the right way. This is also why they have updated the nutrition facts in 2016.
Tips to Consider Before Printing
When planning a label for food, there are a several factors to consider:
- Moisture resistance. This is most common for water bottle labels and other beverage drinks. See our label materials guide to choose a water resistant label. Or just tell your customer service representative you want a BOPP label, not paper.
- Cold and hot temperatures. If your label will be exposed to cold or hot temperatures, you will want a food label that can do the same.
- Rough and uneven surfaces, a label fits best when it is applied to a flat surface. If your bottle or clam shell container is not flat, the label may not stick. Even worse, it could look unprofessional.
- High speed application, will the labels be applied with your hands or a machine?
- Direct food or indirect food contact. If your label will be going on a fruit or vegetable, you will need a food grade label material that is made specifically for direct contact on food.
