Nutridata is the product of EU legislation needs. Starting December 13th 2016, all pre-packaged foods will need to meet the criteria set out in EU 1169/2011; also known as EU FIC – Food Information to Consumers. One of the most problematic areas of this legislation is the need for nutrition data to be included on the labelling of all food.
Specifically, food manufacturers need to indicate the following information:
- Energy (kJ and kcal)
- Saturated Fat
All of this needs to be accompanied by a full ingredient list in quantitative order (known as a Quantitative Ingredient Declaration – commonly know as QUID).
Nutridata software allows food manufacturers ranging from small scale sandwich producers to large scale industrial suppliers to obtain the data and meet the regulatory requirements.
The process is quite simple on the face of it but somewhat more difficult to achieve in reality. That is why we built the software:
How it works:
If you know the nutrition data of your ingredients and how much of each ingredient is present in a product, it is quite simple to calculate the total nutrition data from this information.
For producers, each product is a recipe. Nutridata allows you to build your recipes using either data you provide yourself (from the packagin you receive) or internationally accepted nutrition tables. The tables are available online but without considerable technical ability, it is quite impossible to manage the data realistically for use in your business.
What Nutridata does:
- Nutridata allows you to build your own constituent ingredient tables or borrow the nutrition data from the accepted dataset.
- Once this is compiled, Nutridata allows you to build the ingredients into a recipe.
- Once you have the recipe, Nutridata does the (hundreds!) of calculations per recipe to give you a nutrition set for that particular recipe.
- You can then build your products around each recipe and export the data in a table for use with your labelling software.
We also supply software for labelling and label printers to work with that software. We also supply labels to use in those printers so we are a one-stop shop for all your nutrition and labelling needs.
Who are we?
Nutridata is an offshoot of Positive ID Labelling, a label printing company based in South Derbyshire. We have been producing labels for food and other industries along with retail and a plethora of other customers for over 20 years.
We have been well aware of the problems faced by food businesses as a result of the new regulations and have found few products on the market that really deliver a solution for customers. As a result we decided to branch out and develop our own software to help our current customers and to help new ones who need the support this software can provide.
You can buy your product direct from the website or if you would prefer, give us a call and let us talk you through what we have to offer.
