The NPC is a tool to help food manufacturers calculate the average nutrient content of their food products and prepare a nutrition information panel (NIP).
Some of the new features include:
- improved stability for uninterrupted access
- streamlined process to create recipes using three easy steps
- easier access to tips and guidance.
There are legal requirements for providing nutrition information for food. You can read about the requirements in Standard 1.2.8 - Nutrition Information Requirements of the Food Standards Code.
The NPC database contains Australian food composition data. If you're in New Zealand please see the New Zealand Food Composition Data website for more information.
