Patient discussion about label

Q. Provide me some examples of food labels and nutrition calculations. Hello, Can any one provide me some examples of food labels and nutrition calculations?

A. I have given some 5 basic questions and answers which are related to food labels and nutrition calculations. Hope you will find it useful:

1. How many calories would you consume if you ate the entire bag?
90 calories x 4 servings = 360 calories

2. What is the total amount of calories that come from fat in the entire bag?
30 calories from fat x 4 servings = 120 calories

3. What is the percentage of calories that come from fat in the entire bag?
120 calories from fat ÷ 360 calories = 33%

4. How many calories per serving come from carbohydrates?
13 g Carbohydrates x 4 calories = 52 calories

5. How many calories per serving come from protein?
3 g Protein x 4 calories = 12 calories

Hope you find is useful.

The use of so-called "linerless" labels, which do not require a carrier material, is an alternative method of full-wrap labelling. This means there is no waste carrier material during the labelling process.
"But if one looks in greater detail at full-wrap labelling with self-adhesive labels, one sees that self-adhesive labels offer signifi cant benefi ts over "linerless" labels, since they increase the efficiency of the labelling process, as well as improving the impression of the packs, thereby optimising their attractiveness at the point of sale," explains Michael Reffke, Product Manager for Labelling Technology and Strategic Product Management at MULTIVAC Marking and Inspection.
PALS' HS labelling systems also feature high performance servo drives and PLC controls, ensuring precise and consistent operation and providing the flexibility to handle a wide range of line speeds, label materials and pack sizes.
The KP series of machines uses the MSP and LCA label heads, mounted on the same chassis as the HS machines, to provide a medium speed labelling facility to those packers and producers running at more modest line speeds.
The Commander compact labelling system is also available as a single or multi-head machine and can be fitted with an optional thermal overprinter or hot foil coder.
