Dietary supplement labels must include certain information including the product name, common/usual name or specific term identifying the dietary supplement on the principal display panel. This should then be followed by a list of active ingredients with amounts and daily value amounts, along with manufacturing info, standard of identity designation for food that has it and country of origin statement. Additionally, special labeling restrictions may apply depending on the type of supplement being sold (i.e. vitamins or protein supplements). Finally, if applicable allergen labeling is required in accordance with 21 CFR 101.22 (F).
It is also important to understand the guidelines for structuring product labels so that they are both compliant and customer-friendly. The most important aspect of this is making sure that all information is clear, legible and conspicuous – everything must be easy to find and read within a reasonable amount of time. This means that manufacturers should use the appropriate font styles, sizes, contrasts and other design elements to ensure the customer can quickly access key information about their dietary supplement product.
Make sure you make use of the creative design elements at your disposal to create product labels that are attractive and attractive to potential customers. Use bold and different font sizes, colors, images, and other design elements to draw attention to your brand and key pieces of information (such as active ingredients, directions for use and warning statements). Utilize contrast, visual hierarchy (to communicate a sequence of information) and visuals in the form of icons or symbols. People should be able to quickly scan the label for essential information.
Manufacturers of dietary supplement products should ensure their products are tested to adhere to FDA labeling regulations and meet all compliance requirements. Labels should accurately represent the product, by clearly declaring ingredients and statements, as well as alerting customers of any possible safety risks or side effects associated with consuming dietary supplements. All packaging labels should be user friendly and prominently display truthful print to avoid being misleading. Additionally, make sure all directives such as special storage procedures and/or expiration dates are properly indicated on the product labels.
