Since December 13, 2016 information about foodstuff nutrition on labels (obligatory nutrition declaration) has been a mandatory requirement. This requirement is defined in the regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 of The European Parliament and of The Council of October 25, 2011 on the provision of food information to consumers, amending Regulations (EC) No 1924/2006 and (EC) No 1925/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council, and repealing Commission Directive 87/250/EEC, Council Directive 90/496/EEC, Commission Directive 1999/10/EC, Directive 2000/13/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, Commission Directives 2002/67/EC and 2008/5/EC and Commission Regulation (EC) No 608/2004. A foodstuff nutrition declaration is information about food energy value and certain nutrients within food.
When producing a foodstuff nutrition declaration, the producer must provide average nutrition values based on:
– foodstuff analysis or
– calculation based on known or average values of actual ingredients, or
– calculation based on universally established and accepted data
- We carry out theoretical nutritional calculations of foodstuffs and meals based on foodstuff composition databases or actual average values of the ingredients provided by the producer.*
*The customer must provide the recipes of foodstuffs and meals including the ingredients, their net weight, weight deviations or yield coefficients or yield of the final product. In addition the client should provide the nutrition data of foodstuffs, meals and ingredients, retention factors or nutrient weight deviations after technological process and the amount of fat absorbed during deep frying (if such a process is used).
