EZ Form® Canada Edition creates your Nutrition Facts table (NFT) for you. Asking only basic questions about your product, the software quickly determines serving size, compensates for fat/moisture loss, handles the effects of fortification, and assesses correct panel format in order to produce a fully compliant NFT.
EZ Form® supports most NFT formats: columnar, tabular, and linear; child nutrition, alternative nutrient wordings, and voluntary declaration of nutrients. The final result is a camera-ready NFT in your choice of English, French or English/French.
EZ Form® Canada Edition's expert systems and comprehensive databases guide you through complex regulations, asking only a few simple questions to create accurate and complete nutrition labeling.
EZ Form® analyzes your products' recipes using the built-in ingredient database*. Alternatively you can import nutrient data from a computerized database or manually enter values from laboratory analyses.
EZ Form's SmartCheck expert system interprets and applies Health Canada labeling regulations to your product data. You can also answer your own compliance questions by accessing the latest Nutrition Labeling Regulations at the touch of key. You may display and print the regulations as well.
* Ingredient database is based on US food values. Processors using ingredients of Canadian origin, may have to derive their nutrient analysis differently.
The EZ Form® Nutrient Content claim wizard displays a product's status with respect to nutrient content claim categories. A display of actual versus required values allows R&D to consider re-formulating if a desired claim is almost or barely available. Choose a claim category and select from a list of all the allowed wordings for the claim. Any and all claim qualifiers are automatically included.
EZ Form® completely automates Health Canada's Form 1478, organizing your product's information into the correct format. Product records can be categorized and/or divided among departments to assist in retrieval and to control access. Customized reports can be generated based on all the various fields of information recorded, including product name, approval type, temporary expiration date, ingredient content, and allergen content.
Because Health Canada is constantly changing their food regulations and processes, it is critical that EZ Form® get updated regularly to remain current. This involves significant effort to not only update the regulation databases, but also to reprogram the expert systems, calculators and wizards for up-to-the-minute compliance.
Consequently, EZ Form produces quarterly updates to incorporate these regulation changes. We also invest heavily in program enhancements and perform the occasional bug fix. In the next year we plan to add functionality for claims, aggregate NFTs and dual declaration NFTs. Purchasing EZ Form entitles you to two quarters of free updates. After that, we highly recommend that you purchase an annual subscription to keep your software current.
