Key Information When Labeling Your Products
It is important to ensure that your protein powders and supplements have been labeled with the correct information. For example, all ingredients must be listed, with, and approved for human consumption.
NRV (nutrient reference value) must also be over a certain amount.
RDA (recommended dietary allowance) is judged by the Food and Nutrition boards and must meet the known nutrient needs of all healthy persons.
Protein Powder and Supplement Labelling Materials
Waterproof polypropylene labels are an excellent choice for protein powder products due to their resistance to moisture and other substances that may come into contact with the label. Protein powders are often mixed with water or other liquids, which can cause traditional paper labels to become soggy and illegible. Polypropylene labels, on the other hand, are waterproof and can withstand exposure to moisture, ensuring that the label remains legible and intact throughout the product’s lifespan.
Semi-gloss labels are an excellent choice for protein packaging due to their ability to provide a subtle shine that enhances the overall appearance of the label and product. The semi-gloss finish creates a professional and sophisticated look that can effectively communicate the product’s quality and value to consumers.
They can also be easily printed using a wide range of colours and graphics, allowing manufacturers to create customised labels that effectively communicate their brand messaging and differentiate their products from competitors.
Fluorescent-coloured labels are an excellent option for baking products because they provide high visibility and can help products stand out on shelves. These labels have bright, eye-catching colours that can easily draw attention to the product and make it stand out from other products. The high visibility of fluorescent labels also helps to highlight important information such as ingredients, nutritional information, and allergens, making it easier for consumers to make informed purchasing decisions.
If you would like regular colours printed on your labels, then we would have these digitally printed on top of the label for you.
