FAQ of the Month

Q: I want to show Potassium on my EU label, but when I select it as a voluntary nutrient, it does not show up. Why?

A: EU regulations approach the display of nutrients in negligible amounts somewhat differently from U.S. regulations. EU regulations define “significant amounts” and the list of nutrients and their significant amounts can be found in this blog. By default in Genesis R&D, if the voluntary nutrient amount is less than the significant amount, it will not appear on the label. You can, however, show the presence of potassium, but not the exact amount.

Go to Edit Label > Format Options. Expand the EU subsection. Check “Show ‘contains negligible amount of’ statement” and click OK. Potassium will appear in a statement at the bottom of your label.
