Nutrition labelling compliance test
Appendix 3 - Rounding of nutrition facts table information

Table 1 summarizes the rounding rules for nutrition labelling information, consistent with section B.01.401 and B.01.402 of the Food and Drug Regulations (FDR). The table shows how a range of nutrient values is rounded off to a single value in the Nutrition Facts table. As the nutrient concentration increases, the range of values represented by the single rounded value also increases.

Table 2 shows the rounding and compliance limit impact for declarations of added vitamins and mineral nutrients where there is no tolerance.

Table 3 shows the impact of applying the tolerance to the minimum or maximum limit prior to rounding. Thus, for a label value listed in column A, the outer limits of the pre-rounding range that is represented by the label value are provided in columns B and C. Column D provides the tolerance amount (calculated as 20% of the declared amount) and Column E provides their minimum or maximum compliance limit of the nutrient amount that may be found in the sample with respect to a given label value (column A), for the lot to be accepted.

Example: Table 3, Class II, Fat - A value of 2.5 g per serving is declared: rounding is to the nearest 0.5 g, so the maximum limit prior to rounding (pre-round) is 2.74 g ; a further 20% tolerance or 0.5 g is added to the pre-round to give a maximum acceptable limit = 2.74+ 0.5 = 3.24 g. Therefore, a sample containing 3.24 g fat or less would be accepted for a product declaring 2.5 g fat per serving in the Nutrition Facts table.
