Solvaira Specialties has announced that Jit Ang will speak at the September 16, 2016 conference on FDA & USDA changes to labeling of dietary fibers.

With the finalization of the FDA’s nutritional labeling ruling and changes to the approved list of dietary fibers, Q1 Productions has tapped Jit Ang to speak on the topic at their upcoming conference, Food Labeling: Evolving Regulatory Compliance in Alexandria, Va.

Recognized throughout the industry as a fiber expert, Jit Ang will be speaking in the session titled “Redefining Dietary Fiber: Impact on Product Formulas and Label Claims”. Mr. Ang will discuss the new definition of dietary fiber; the labeling of approved dietary fibers and other (non-approved) fibers; the impact of revised standards and claims and effective reformulation strategies for the food industry.

This insight into the science behind the health benefits of different types of fiber as well as strategies for incorporating ingredients that will satisfy the new fiber definition will provide industry executives with an advantage in the marketplace. A complete understanding of a fiber ingredient’s eligibility for label declaration is imperative for formulators to ensure their products are in compliance with the new regulations.
