4 Sunday, July 14, 2013 Food Magic Daily GENESIS R&D SIMPLIFIES THE COMPLEX Time and money are in increasingly shorter supply these days, so many companies are looking for ways to save both. Unfortunately, taking a shortcut in one area may result in spending more money over the long run. R&D Product Genesis ® Development and Labeling software assists users in every aspect of food product development, from an idea's inception through to government-compliant labeling. The extensive food and ingredient database lets you virtually experiment with unlimited possibilities. Plug your ingredients into the program and it will automatically analyze it for up to 160 nutrients, including the basics (calories, fat, sugars, etc.) and the more obscure (amino acids, fat exchanges). You can tweak ingredients on "paper" before formulating them in the lab. The program lets you scale your ingredients to large batches; adjust for processing losses and gains in fat or moisture; Genesis R&D even has a data check in place so you can instantly see where values may be off. Then when you're ready to present the nutrient analysis information, you have a variety of reports to choose from. The Bar Graph, Spreadsheet, Dairy Density report and many others graphi- cally display information so you and your peers can quickly evaluate your products and keep a record of the process. Nutrition Labeling Genesis R&D provides you with the tools to create camera-ready, NLEAcompliant nutrition facts panels from the recipes and formulas entered. One click and you can see how the label for your item will look. You will start with the basic label (adult, child, dual declaration and more) and fine-tune the options until the configuration is exactly right. Included in the labeling feature are all of the necessary extras: ingredient statements, allergen statements and nutrient content claims. These, too, can be easily modified to fit any circumstance. Your finished Nutrition Facts label and its elements will conform to government regulations. Modules are available to create labels for Mexican and Canadian regulations as well. Supplement Labeling For companies whose primary concentration is on nutritionals, supplements, teas and other wellness items, Genesis R&D has supplement labeling options. Again, the label formats comply with government regulations and a variety of layout WOODLAND FOODS: BRINGING A WORLD OF FLAVOR TO IFT Woodland Foods, a premier importer and supplier of more than 1,100 specialty natural food ingredients under the Woodland Foods and D'Allesandro labels, is appearing at IFT in Chicago this year.
