 Amgad: Hello from UAE United Arab Emirates 
 ramesh: If the regulation is silent on allergens to be labelled, what shall the manufacturer do?

 Narongchai: Ramesh, I think we should follow the CODEX.
 DonaldTrump: Do you recommend any specific Nutrition Label Software?
 leila: Country of origin: only mnadatory for raw food? i.e.: meat/chiken, etc
 Raquel Vaz: No Leia. IT is all for meat products
 DonaldTrump: Do you recommend any specific Nutrition Label Software?
 mike peters: donaldtrump -  i like esha genesis

 Helen: we also use Genesis, easy to use, and very extensive USDA database 
 MUHAMMAD Raza Ullah: Good
 ramesh: Thanks Narongchai!!!
 Goldi Chauhan: Hello from UAE
 David: How about the term "Use by date" for  high risk foods?
 Cindy: We use Genesis too.
 DonaldTrump: Genesis is in the lead!
 Narongchai: Free for Genesis?
 Epitacio : I do sgrere with Carlos... Low twmpwratures prevent grpwth of most microorganisms 
 Jenny: I also use Genesis, would recommend, although if you put rubbish into the data base you get rubbish out
 DonaldTrump: No rubbish into Genesis.... check.
 Franziska: how much is Genesis?
 Cindy: one permit for around $6000?
 larbi: what about net weight / drained weight
 Raluca: Aaron - depends on the country you sell in. For EU, Reg. 1169 allows to state declaration based on the calculation - taking into consideration recognised scientific information, production formula, etc
 ivan: Will we get a copy of the PPT presentation
 DonaldTrump: Stupid food labels.
 Yohannes Habtu: Is there a standard 'legal' phrasing for distinguishing between the 'Best Before Date' a (product quality concern) from the drop dead 'Expiry Date' after which consumer wellbeing maybe at risk? Or is the selection of phrases upto the executor?
 Anne: Why is the  USDA-Nop logo listed with the misleading?
 mike peters: aaron - genesis will auto populate claims that can be made.  I dont use it though
 Narongchai: Dear Ivan, we will get it later via email.
 larbi: GMO labeling is it mandatory
 Simon Timperley  (to Narongchai): thanks.
 Nneka: Hello
 ivan: Thank you Narongchai
 Zein Al-Abideen Hijazi: Sodium benzoate --- only if above the limits
 Cindy: Can I get the PPT ?
 Raluca: Larbi - in EU, if you use GMO ingredients, yes, you need to state this information. This is why most companies do not allow them to be used in production.
 Narongchai: Cindy, yes via email
 JeffC: hello
 larbi: Thanks Raluca
 Cindy: Thanks Narongchai!
 Simon Timperley: Please read the green label at the top of the chat.
 tadeo: Raluca,  the requirement is to state made from GMO , but that doesn't make the food not to be legal
 Narongchai: Cindy, also with certificate after attending.
 Raluca: uw, larbi
 Cindy: Great!
 Sanjay: If the PPT get through email it will be highly appreciated. As slides are blurry.
 Raluca: true, tadeo, in EU you may produce and sell these products, but need to declare it to the consumers
 tadeo: simon all i can see request to speak
 Emmanuel: Dr Papilo
 tadeo: absolutelt@Raluca
 Epitacio : Yaser: you mention the use of Microscopy. I do actually practice food microscopy and it has a lot of potential...!
 victor: adelaide how be with your certification
 Kay: Prof. Emmanuel Adej, nice you are here
 carlitopas@yahoo.com: What is the effect to human being if he eats an expired food
 anthony: no point looking at the ingredient list if the product is expired
 Narongchai: I do agree with anthony
 Goldi Chauhan: I also agree...
 tadeo: expired doesn't mean not safe for consumption@Anthony
 Jacobo: I agree too
 Seth: I don't agree with Anthony.  Many times, it's a best by date.  If it's a canned product, and the ingredients have a lot of preservatives, the best by or expiry date wouldn't bother me as much as long as it was within reason.
 Cindy: It is assumed the food should be not expires if they are on the shelf.
 Seth: who hasn't eaten a can of something from their pantry that had expired by months?
 DonaldTrump: I don't agree with Anthony and others because exp date is usually just a Best By Date.
 Simon Timperley: I ate mustard 5 years out of date and I'm still here.  My wife is now tryign other means.
 Narongchai: I still do agree with Antony
 carlitopas@yahoo.com: If I buy food, I always start to look first the expiry date then the ingredients
 Batten: Does food expire?
 Jacobo: what about cnned food?
 anthony: the choice was expiry date, not best by date
 Narongchai: Yes, anthony
 Helen: the nutrients of ingredients varie from seasons to seasons, so how often do you recomment to review the information on label, e.g. nutrition facts? 
 Raluca: Carlitopas: depending how far from the expir. date you ate the product and the type of product. Normally, its illness. But the product may be safe long time after exp date,
 DonaldTrump: An Exp date is basically just a Best By Dayte though even if the actual wording is not Best By date.
 Seth: in canned food, an expiry date is more for the company's protection
 Tara: lol simon!  
 Joseph Alexandrou: Is it mandatory to label storage instructions on canned/pasteurized foods?
 carlitopas@yahoo.com: Thanks to all
 tadeo: yes Joseph it's mandatory
 DonaldTrump: Simon ate mustard that was 5 years beyond the Exp date.... but what if he was allergic to mustard.... even if the mustard was not expired?
 larbi: Thanks
 Nneka: pLEASE WHAT SHOULD BE THE EXPIRING DATE FOR BOTTLED WATER?
 leila: i.e: result from ext lab for salt: 3,3, label: 2,2....????
 tadeo: Donald , mustard will always have allergenic warning
 lillian: In us, some of the nutrient values be 120
 Raquel Vaz: If a product is still going to be manufactured by other company, is the nutritional facts mandatory on the label?
 Javed: Can water be declared as a processing aid?
 maureen: The USDA allows a 20% variance on nutritional information in order to cover test method variables etc.  
 lillian: nutrition fact is only needed when sold to the consumer in retail packaging in us
 DonaldTrump: So with an Allergenic warning then the most important of the 4 choices previously mentioned would be ingredients.  :)
 tadeo: Raquel Vaz i don't think , cs it's a raw material for another company. i
 carlitopas@yahoo.com: If food is already expired, most of the retailers will the the product to the manufacturer
 Janice Dye: is storage information required for snack foods, stored at ambient temperatures?
 Emmanuel: not many people will care about the nutritional fact
 Narongchai: Maureen, for each nutrient?
 DIMITRA: hi form GREECE!!
 Raquel Vaz: Thanks tadeo
 tadeo: Maureen do u have validation for 20% tolerance and on which can of foods?
 athanasios Blanas: hi dimitra from greeece
 Seth: what you look at on the label as a consumer is still highly dependent on the individual.  I have no allergies.  I'm not hung up on different types of additives .  I'm much more interested in the nutritional information than any of the others. 
 Sara: What percentage of ingredients do you have to declare for Country of Origin?
 tadeo: Your welcome Raquel
 charith: as per GCC reglutations, when they talk about allergens, it is written as WALNUTS & NUTS. why does it declare instead of writing as "NUTS" only?
 maureen: the 20% variance I speak of is in the USDA regulations so only pertains to meat items
 tadeo: Thanks Maureen.
 Adebisi: nneka  lotas of factor lik processing or purification standards and regulation  and local policy
 FOCK CHEONG: hi there, Choi from Malaysia #1MDB
 Nneka: Mr Yasser please what should be the expiring date for bottled water because in my location we mostly see only the production date? 
 DonaldTrump: Right on Yasser!
 maureen: :)you are welcome Tadeo 
 Epitacio : Simon: Is it possible to expect a Webinar on Optical Food Microscopy in the near future?
 Mahalet: Hello Mahalet from Maryland 
 Tara: why do some products have a best buy date and some product shipped with a manufacturing date?
 Tara: Why do some products have a best buy date and some products have a manufacturing date?
 maureen: @Narongchai - the 20% pertains to each attribute ( fat, sodium etc) as there is a lot of variance from the lab methods so you should label what you find in the database or lab result
 mike peters: (5) A food with a label declaration of calories, sugars, total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, or sodium shall be deemed to be misbranded under section 403(a) of the act if the nutrient content of the composite is greater than 20 percent in excess of the value for that nutrient declared 
 Laetitia: When relabelling is needed? is it a legal requirement?
 larbi: nneka in our region bottled water is labelled 12 months after production date
 charith: as per GCC reglutations, when they talk about allergens, it is written as WALNUTS & NUTS. why does it declare instead of writing as "NUTS" only?
 Herbert: Thanks Yasser, Simon have a great weekend.
 Narongchai: Thanks, mareen, mike
 Cindy: Thanks!
 Jacobo: Thanks Yasser
 Helen: thank you.
 Adebisi: Thanks 
 Lyudmila Burtovaya: Thank you very much!!!!
