Hey, guys, it's Damian from marketing food online, and as always, I hope you're having an amazing day. Actually, I am actually extremely excited to bring you guys this particular video. The reason being that I've had a lot of questions about nutritional labels. Of course, if you are trying to produce a food product or you're looking to make your own food product, each product, of course, has to have a nutritional label on it. In some cases, as you've seen in some of my videos, you could apply for an exemption, but this is going to be a video about those who actually want to put the label on, who have to have the label on their products. So there's the nutritional label.This is onlinelabels.com. I probably talked about onlinelabels.com, I think, a dozen times in videos. I absolutely love this company and the software that they have available, and the labels are just hands down second to none. This company has its act together. I guess you want to say, it is a very well-done company. This particular software is a free nutrition label generating program, which I will walk you through. I'm going to show you how it works. Before I continue with any other information, I need to tell you right up front that this is to create the physical label. This is not to get the nutritional analysis, okay? Don't misunderstand the video. I want to make sure you understand that you have to, of course, have the information. And I'll scroll down. And, of course, I'll explain what I mean. But you need to have the nutritional analysis. You have to have the product broken down into nutritional data and information that you can plug in to what I'm about to show you. So this does not do the nutritional analysis, but it does create the label, which is just as important. You know, it's the second most important part of having a nutritional label for your food product. Real quick, I want to go through this, a free nutritional label generator. Selling a food or beverage product? You can create a custom nutrition label today and have it instantly. You're doing it yourself. Now, I'm going to scroll down and I'm going to show you a really important little tidbit of information. I'm not sure if you know this or not. But the format of nutritional labels has been updated by the FDA. They recently finalized those changes, and it was actually in 2016. It was two years ago. And I'm going to give you a link, of course, to this particular page on the site. So, you can learn more about this information by reading more about it.I'm not going to get into this information because this video is specifically about creating the label. It's not about discussing the changes to the nutritional label itself, okay? So just keep that in mind. I'll have a link specific to the page you're looking at, and you can simply just click on this blue text and you can read up on that, alright? So, step one. Okay, which version of the nutritional label generator would you like to use? Just stick to the new one because it includes the updated guidelines for it as far as the formatting and how the label will actually look. So just leave that. It's actually by default. It's already on there, and you're good to go. Step two. This is just so amazing because they make this so easy for you. It's amazing. I love it. Not to sound redundant, but I do. So the most basic nutritional label is a vertical layout. Now, they have three different styles, which are completely FDA-compliant and within the FDA regulations to have them formatted in this style. This is a standard nutritional label with extra fields for miscellaneous vitamins and a vertical layout, et cetera. And then you have the tabbed nutrition label for bottles and round containers. This one is more elongated, rectangular, and longer, so it actually goes around the perimeter, or inside of the bottle itself. Not on the inside, but the outside around the bottle or jar or can, something that effects how it would fit perfectly, okay? Now, the one I'm going to do is just for the example. It's going to be this one. And it takes you there automatically. Once you click that, it goes to step three. Now, this is, I'm going to walk you through this and I want you to understand. Listen very, very carefully to what I'm about to tell you about this step in particular. It's extremely important. When you create a food product, the way that it's packaged is determined by you. What does that mean? Well, the servings per container, right here, you can determine that. I would highly recommend when you make a product to break it down into really small servings. And that is up to you. Why would I recommend you doing that? Let's say we're going to do an example, a 16-ounce package, which is one pound, a 16-ounce package of peanuts, let's just say. And normally, a peanut, a nut serving is maybe one and a half ounces to two ounces, right? Now, one 16-ounce package, if you did two ounces per serving, you would have in a 16-ounce package eight servings, correct? Because we have two ounces and you'll multiply it by eight, obviously, it's 16 ounces. Create as many, I don't want to say go too small, but create smaller serving sizes because your calories, fat, and salt, sodium, your cholesterol, all the nutritional value and nutritional information are going to be considerably smaller the smaller your serving size is dictated by you. Does that make sense? So if you have a 16-ounce package, let's just say you wanted to go to one ounce, okay? So all of the nutritional data that you're going to put in here is going to be based upon a one-ounce serving. Got it? Each container contains one serving.Let's do this. We're going to mix it up here a little bit. So servings per container, I'm going to do four. And it's going to be rounded by default, so just leave that be for right now. That's the one I left. I don't change that, just leave it. And then what I'm going to do is let me go over okay. So here's what I did. I went ahead and plugged in some numbers to give you an idea of how this works. So again, a 16-ounce bag of peanuts. That's our example. You type in the servings per container, which is going to be eight. The unit is two ounces. And then, of course, the grams. Two ounces equates to 56, roughly 56 grams. And again, leave the default. This part right here is simple. Leave it the way it is. Scroll down, and now again, I'm just making up these numbers to give you an example. Once you get your nutritional analysis back, what you want to do is plug in all of that information they gave you here. Let's say 210 calories, right? And then total fat, seven. Saturated fats were two. There's no trans fat in peanuts because they don't have peanuts, unless they're processed. And they have additional items in there. There's zero cholesterol, sodium, and that's again, milligrams. These are going to be per serving. And again, once you get your analysis back, that is when you plug these numbers in. 120 milligrams of sodium. Carbohydrates, 24. four.dietary fiber, as opposed to sugar, these nuts don't have sugar. Added sugar, now that is something new. This is a new feature to the new quote and quote, the new updated labels. is that you have to recognize and let the consumer know if you've added sugar to your product. What does that mean? Well, let's say you made apple juice. Apples have natural sugar. Apples have sugar, so you would put sugar here. Some companies add additional sweeteners. If you're doing that, you need to account for that additional sweetener. And let's say, for instance, you were making apple juice and had 24 grams of sugar. And you, as a processor of pure apple juice or concentrated, added 10 grams. You add it on there and that's where you account for it. Again, I'm going to go back to the example of the peanuts really quickly. I kind of got a little sidetrack there because I wanted to show you what added sugars are. So no peanuts for us.And zero on the peanuts here. And then the proteins, 12 grams per serving. And then you hit this "generate" button. Give it a couple seconds and it will automatically go down. And look at this, guys, you're done. A professionally made, FDA approved, regulated product that follows the regulations of the FDA to the T. This is the new layout, by the way. Let me show you really quickly the big difference. The biggest portion is this. The amount per serving is The calorie count per serving is increased. They want the consumer to understand this label a little more. Actually, a lot more. because consumers were not understanding this. So the calories per serving, not the bag, but per serving, is 210 calories, okay? The rest of this information is actually pretty standard, other than the added sugar line, which is something that's new as well. Now, what do you do with this, Damian? Well, good question. Now, you can download this image or this pdf onto your computer. Once you've downloaded it, then you get to pick it out. You need to have the right labels. So this is what I love so much about it. On my labels, you can check out their large selection of labels. These are labels specifically for guys, for the food nutritional labels. Okay, keep that in mind. They've generated Now, online labels have thousands upon thousands of labels. You have 22 to choose from because that is the specific label set on the program to accommodate printing of nutritional labels. This is going to be where you've got to pay attention to how you're packaging your product. I'll just scan it really quickly. These are the different shapes to choose from. Then they break it down into tall, et cetera, okay? That label I just made that you just saw could go on any of these labels. It will print on these labels. And the last one is a tab. Remember, that was the one that's elongated? It's more rectangular and long because it could go around jars and cans and things. And then that's it. That's it there. So what you have to do at this point, though, is pick out a label. Because you cannot use anyone else's labels or templates to print out that specific shape from here. So let's say this is the one you like. Click on it. Give it a second, let it pop up. This is the label that they have recommended for that nutritional label, right? So, first and foremost, choose your material.We're just going to do standard white. You know, nothing colored or anything. We'll get that. And this one, by the way, is for laser and inkjet printers. Laser and inkjet, right? Scroll down, and then you can select your quantity unit. You need 100 sheets. Well, you're getting 800 labels because there are eight labels on each sheet, right? And it's in stock. 16.95. It's 16 cents per sheet. You're getting eight labels. That breaks down to two cents. You're printing nutritional labels for your food products for two cents. If you have this done by somebody for you, I will guarantee you that you're going to pay anywhere from 25 to 38 cents, somewhere around there, per label, okay? I'd be shocked if you could get something like a nutritional label for less than that. And then you're done. Add it to your cart and get the label. Now, when you get the label, then you go to the maestro. Let me get it right here. This one here, which is theirs, right here. Once you've downloaded it, you go to maestro label design, and I've shown you before in the other videos that I have. I'll sign in really quickly. And then you could simply just go ahead and start printing. Really, that's all it is. So with that being said, I'm going to wrap up the video. I wanted to show you something really, really simple. You know how I do my videos, I don't drag on and just yap, yap, yap. I want you to see how you can do these labels yourselves. very inexpensive. I have a whole bunch of other videos that I want to show you. There was something I wanted to show you. This is the nutritional label generator, right? Now, the next one I'm gon na show you guys, and you gotta watch this one. is the barcode generator. These types of barcode labels can also be printed by yourself. I highly recommend you do it because it's simple, you can do it with your eyes closed, and it costs nothing. Literally, it's so cheap. It's unbelievable. Now, what I'm going to do is nine videos. Why am I doing nine videos? Because there are nine variations of barcode types out there. You may not realize that, but there are, and you need to be aware of what they are. You may not use all of these, but understanding which one is the right one for your product is something you need to know. This one is just a standard UPC, EAN 13, the Code 39, the Codabar, PostNet, et cetera, et cetera. I'm going to show you and explain exactly what these are. So guys, if this was informative and helpful, and I hope that it certainly was, because this is an amazing piece of software you have to use, guys. And it's not rocket science. If you have questions about it, as always, just let me know down below. It's very simple, and I will get back to you as soon as possible. But that is how you make your own nutritional label. So I appreciate it guys. Thank you for your time and I'll see you on the next video.
