Frequently asked questions


To create compliant labels, can I use your software or do I need to have my products analyzed by a laboratory?
Click here for a discussion of when calculation is appropriate and when it is not and for tips on how to create compliant food labels with Shop'NCook Pro software.


How can I save the food panel?
See the blog for a discussion on how to save and use the created nutrition facts panels.


Why did the tool changed the values I entered?
The nutrition labeling tool applies the rounding guidelines of the FDA. For more information, see the code of federal regulation on nutrition labeling of food, section 101.9.


Troubleshooting: If you keep receiving the message that the format for the vitamin A is bad, it is due to a display problem that can occur if you have used your browser back button. To fix it, you just need to switch once between the "actual value" and "percent" and back.


Disappointed with the result? The display of the food nutrition facts label works best with a recent version of Google Chrome or Safari browsers.
