Bizarre Ingredients

When deciding wheter to buy a particular food item, we often read the product's nutrition lable. Labels on food packaging help us find out which ingredients it contains. If it's gluten-free, contains less saturated fat, etc. Although food labels include important information, there are some things that just remain hidden. Here is a list of weird food facts that you probably didn't know.

A Food Labeling Guide (USA)

1.  Where should label statements be placed on containers and packages?
ucm374223
Answer: There are two ways to label packages and containers:
a Place all required label statements on the front label panel (the principal display panel or PDP), or,
b Place certain specified label statements on the PDP and other labeling on the information panel (the label panel immediately to the right of the PDP, as seen by the consumer facing the product).


2.  What are the PDP and the alternate PDP?
Answer: The PDP, is that portion of the package label that is most likely to be seen by the consumer at the time of purchase. Many containers are designed with two or more different surfaces that are suitable for display as the PDP. These are alternate PDPs.

3.  What label statements must appear on the PDP?
Answer: Place the statement of identity, or name of the food, and the net quantity statement, or amount of product, on the PDP and on the alternate PDP. The required type size and prominence are discussed in sections 4 and 5 of this guidance.

4.  Which label panel is the information panel?
Answer: The information panel is the label panel immediately to the right of the PDP, as displayed to the consumer. If this panel is not usable, due to package design and construction, (e.g., folded flaps), then the information panel is the next label panel immediately to the right.

ucm197907

5.  What is information panel labeling?

ucm194632
Answer: The phrase "information panel labeling" refers to the label statements that are generally required to be placed together, without any intervening material, on the information panel, if such labeling does not appear on the PDP. These label statements include the name and address of the manufacturer, packer or distributor, the ingredient list, nutrition labeling and any required allergy labeling.

6.  What type size, prominence and conspicuousness is required?

nswer: For information panel labeling, use a print or type size that is prominent, conspicuous and easy to read. Use letters that are at least one-sixteenth (1/16) inch in height based on the lower case letter "o". The letters must not be more than three times as high as they are wide, and the lettering must contrast sufficiently with the background so as to be easy to read. Do not crowd required labeling with artwork or non-required labeling.
Smaller type sizes may be used for information panel labeling on very small food packages as discussed in 21 CFR 101.2(c) & (f).
Different type sizes are specified for the Nutrition Facts label. (see section 7)
The type size requirements for the statement of identity and the net quantity statement are discussed in sections 4 and 5 of this guidance.


7.  What is the prohibition against intervening material?
Answer: Information that is not required by FDA is considered intervening material and is not permitted to be placed between the required labeling on the information panel (e.g., the UPC bar code is not FDA required labeling).

ucm194639

8.  What name and address must be listed on the label?
Answer: Food labels must list:
a Name and address of the manufacturer, packer or distributor. Unless the name given is the actual manufacturer, it must be accompanied by a qualifying phrase which states the firm's relation to the product (e.g., "manufactured for "or "distributed by");
b Street address if the firm name and address are not listed in a current city directory or telephone book;
c City or town;
d State (or country, if outside the United States); and
e ZIP code (or mailing code used in countries other than the United States).

This is not a fake product

Certainly this toothpaste is not a fake product, it is obvious and hilarious.

We at Validactor fight real fakes: We fight products that seems visually identical to the real ones; products that cannot be easily spotted as fakes or counterfeit, products that are a real danger to human life. It is a difficult task but we like difficult tasks, they are more rewarding. And we are winning the war.

Password Protected Codes

Today I am pleased to announce the release of a completely new functionality aimed to be used by companies in need of an increased extra level of data security, in particular to jewellers, diamond wholesalers and all those businesses that are not willing to to transfer sensible information via email.

In fact, today it is possible to protect batches of VACodes with a user defined password. The person that receives the VACode in order to display the linked information - for example all the characteristics of a jewel - will have to type the password provided by the VACode creator. The company can change the password anytime, disabling “de-facto” the possibility to read again the linked data using the *already provided* password.

Mrs. Dorothea Bousek, Head of Nordic Markets and Luxury Products, announced the new functionality yesterday July 7th in Vienna (Austria) at the monthly investor meeting.

At Validactor security is our top priority at all levels, we keep our key focus on security along on user experience and data integrity, added Dorothea.

More and more companies worldwide are expressing their interests in the Validactor offering. Take a look at our corporate website, visit https://www.my-validactor.com
