Showing the Specific Source of Sugar Alcohol on a Nutrition Facts Label

If a food contains multiple sugar alcohols and Sugar Alcohol is listed on the label, then the nutrient name should be listed as:

  • Sugar Alcohol for U.S.
  • Sugar Alcohol(s), Polyalcool(s) or Polyol(s) for Canada

If a food contains only one type of sugar alcohol, then the label can list the name of the specific sugar alcohol, e.g. sorbitol, erythritol, etc.

In Genesis R&D Foods version 11.5 or later, users have the ability to display the specific sugar alcohol (e.g. Sorbitol) on the label instead of the generic "Sugar Alcohol."

How to show a specific source of sugar alcohol on your label

  1. With your Recipe open, click View Label. Remember, Sugar Alcohol is a voluntary nutrient, so it doesn't automatically appear and you will have to show it on the Label.
  2. Click Edit Label and select Voluntary Nutrients.
  3. Check Sugar Alcohol.
  4. Click OK and you can see it's now on the label.
  5. Again, go to Edit Label. This time, select Nutrient Options.
  6. Expand Sugar Alcohol.
  7. Type "Sorbitol" in the English Specific Sugar Alcohol text field.
  8. Click OK and "Sorbitol" now appears on the label.
