"EZ Form software is a great tool for preparing applications for label approvals and managing them.  It is very good at helping to manage CN labels.  The Deluxe version also provides assistance with Canadian regulations.  I recommend taking training for EZ Form.  Then depending on the complexity of one’s labeling function, develop a procedure for how you will use EZ Form for each of the various types of labels; e.g. CN, retail, foodservice, etc."

Nutrition Facts Panels

EZ Form® creates your Nutrition Facts panel (NFP) for you. Asking only basic questions about your product, the software quickly determines serving size and servings per container, compensates for fat/moisture loss, handles the effects of fortification, and assesses correct panel format in order to produce a fully compliant NFP. 

EZ Form supports all new and old NFP formats: columnar, tabular, and linear; dual declaration and aggregate panels, alternative nutrient wordings, and voluntary declaration of nutrients. The final result is a camera-ready NFP in your choice of English, Spanish, French, English/Spanish or English/French.

Nutrient & Health Claims Wizards

The EZ Form® Nutrient Content claim wizard displays a product's status with respect to all 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. 

With answers to a few basic questions about a product, the EZ Form® Health Claim wizard determines that product's status with respect to all health claims.  Choose a claim, select from a list of models for the wording of that claim, and then edit that claim as desired using guidance from the context-sensitive Help system.

ADA Exchange & Child Nutrition Calculators

ADA exchanges are used by millions of Americans with diabetes, weight problems, or other conditions requiring dietary management. But normally, food companies need a special database or consulting dietitian to calculate their products' exchange credits.   EZ Form® contains an exceptional feature: the ADA exchange wizard. Combining the knowledge of a certified diabetes educator, a clinical dietitian, a regulatory expert, and a food processor, this wizard needs only simple product information to calculate ADA exchange credits.

Want to add a Child Nutrition box to your product label? The EZ Form® Child Nutrition calculator helps you quickly categorize the ingredients in your product for Child Nutrition purposes. EZ Form then computes for you the meat, bread, and vegetable credits earned for the Child Nutrition program. Use EZ Form's label sketching routine to quickly add a properly formatted and worded CN box to your label sketch.

USDA-ready Form 7234 & Record Tracking

EZ Form® completely automates the USDA's Form 7234, 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.

Quarterly Subscription Updates

Because the USDA and FDA are 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.  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.
