As consumers demand more clean label-baked products, bakeries must consider the possible implications on their products. The growing trend towards clean label baked products will drive more experimentation with clean label ingredients each year. The Regulatory Perspectives on Clean Label session at ABA’s Technical Conference will answer pressing questions important to your bakery, such as:
- What regulatory parameters do I need to be aware of?
- How could regulatory restrictions impact what you are purchasing to use in clean label foods?
While R&D teams aim to simplify ingredient statements, food labeling regulations may provide some restrictions. Join Elaine Meloan, Food Labeling Manager at AIB International as she addresses the impact of ingredient naming, incidental additives and Organic on the final label. The session will also examine how Natural labeling is related to the clean label concept.
