Candy labels inform people about the contents of a candy packaging, and they visually stimulate consumers to purchase the product. Candy available in stores needs to have a label that follows FDA regulations on proper food labeling and includes the following information: Name of the manufacturer, name of the product (candy), net weight of contents, ingredients and nutrition facts. Aside from this important information, the label needs to have a unique and appealing design. It will most likely be the decisive factor in developing a customer’s desire for this particular candy.
The Importance of Following FDA Guidelines
The FDA has an important role in regulating how candy is produced and labeled in the US. The FDA has been making efforts to regulate the amount of lead in candy. The most recent regulation recommends candy manufacturers to not exceed the maximum amount of 0.1 ppm.
Consumers are advised to follow FDA guidelines, the latest warnings and news, because they often warn people against purchasing specific candy brands that might be harmful in any way. Producers are also advised to use good candy manufacturing practices to make sure their products do not pose a threat to consumers’ safety.
Include Ingredients that are Classified as Allergens
If your candy includes anything in the eight major allergens (Milk, Eggs, Wheat, Fish, Crustacean shellfish, Tree nuts, Peanuts, Soybeans), it’s important that it needs to add allergen labeling, and this text must be as large as the ingredients text.
If your candy product contains alcohol in excess of half of 1 percent, you will need to include that on your label.
