Essentia Nutritional Calculator

With the appeal of protein expanding way beyond the traditional categories and more into mainstream foods where health and nutrition have become much more important, we offer you our Nutritional Calculator. It is developed to help you re-position your food brand as more healthy and thereby to its maximum potential.

By providing just the Protein, Fat and Carbohydrate values from your “back of pack” we can quickly establish the % level of energy derived from protein that it contains. Using these basic nutritional data, the calculator determines what is required to upgrade your food or beverage product to a higher protein classification according to Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006 that regulates the labelling of food as Source of protein, High in protein or simply as Enriched.

Using the Essentia Nutritional Calculator you can quickly and easily elevate your products to the next level of nutrition, in a few simple steps.
