WHAT FONT SIZE IS REQUIRED FOR THE INGREDINTS ON A PACKAGE
Hi my name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist you.
Smaller type sizes may be used for information panel labeling on very small food packages as discussed in 21 CFR 101.2(c) & (f).
For information panel labeling, use a print or type size that is prominent, conspicuous and easy to read. Use letters that are at least one- sixteenth (1/16) inch in height based on the lower case letter “o”. The letters must not be more than three times as high as they are wide, and the lettering must contrast sufficiently with the background so as to be easy to read. Do not crowd required labeling with artwork or non-required labeling.
The type size requirements for the statement of identity and the net quantity statement are discussed in sections 4 and 5 of this guidance.
