NET WT 16oz (454g)
Serving Size 2 Tbsp (33g)
454g / 33g = 13.75g
Servings about 14
Please note: there are rounding rules established by the FDA. We will help determine the correct number of Servings for your label.
The RACC (Reference Amounts Customarily Consumed) is used to find a serving size for a particular product. The RACC is regulated by the FDA.
We will help you determine the correct Serving Size for your food or beverage product per the FDA’s RACC.
For example: If the weight of the bowl or container you are using to set your food into in order to weigh it is .5 ounces and the final weight of your food product before processing is 4 oz., then the weight of your product will be 3.5 oz (4 oz. - .5 oz).
For example, if you have 18g of dough and the final weight of the baked product is 5g, you know you've loss 13g of moisture.
18g (Initial weight before processing)
5g (Final weight after processing)
13g (moisture loss)
13g /18g = 72% of moisture loss in final product
100% - 72% = 28% moisture in final product
- Recipe with list of ingredients and sub-ingredients, and amounts used in Grams, Ounces, Percentages, or Household Measurements (ie: ½ cup white sugar, 60g water).
- Copy of Nutrition Facts Label, Ingredient and Allergen Statement of any processed food sub-ingredient. (ie: enriched flours, canned tomatoes).
- Number of servings per recipe and Serving Size in grams or ounces. Don’t worry if you don’t know, we will help determine.
- Final moisture percent of finished product or before and after weight of your food product. Read more on moisture loss below.
Because of their complex nature, these foods commonly need laboratory analysis:
- Fermented products, such as beer or wine.
- Complex recipes that may be brined or marinated, such as a beef jerkey.
- Brewed products, such as coffee or tea.
Please contact us to discuss your food product. We can determine if your product will need laboratory testing.
