Hello, 

 

Our company manufactures dietary supplements.  Some of these supplements are given in capsule doses.  Recently we are re-doing our labels and have come to a disagreement regarding the supplement fact panel. 

 

Within our supplement fact panel it lists "serving size 2 capsules".  Behind the serving size is it necessary or needed to put in parenthesis behind it the metric weight units (750mg), for example. We do for our powders but I don't know if it is a requirement for capsules or liquids. 

 

Any help is appreciated.

United States.  We will be exporting some of our products to sell outside of the country.

As far as the United States goes, I believe that we do not have to list the metric weight after the dose for capsules, correct?

From above link;  How must I express the net quantity of contents statement on my label?

You must express the net quantity of contents statement in either weight, measure, numerical count or a combination of numerical count and weight or measure. When you express this quantity as a weight or measure, you must specify both metric (grams, kilograms, milliliters, or liters) and U.S. Customary System (ounces, pounds, or fluid ounces) terms.

Public Law 102-329, August 3, 1992 and 21 CFR 101.105
