ESHA Research and TraceGains Transform Nutritional Labeling

by | May 28, 2021

In late 2017, TraceGains announced a groundbreaking strategic partnership with ESHA Research, the leading provider of food formulation and labeling compliance software, commonly known as Genesis R&D®.

The two allied ahead of the FDA’s proposed Nutrition Facts label changes. Many expect increased demand for a better process for gathering and updating supplier ingredient data. And with the ESHA-TraceGains automated interface, users can import their supplier data directly from TraceGains into ESHA’s Genesis R&D software.

ESHA has developed a new workflow tool for Genesis R&D, DataLink, which calls ingredient data from the TraceGains supplier portal and imports the data into the Genesis R&D database. DataLink allows for shared customers to update supplier ingredient data without having to enter nutrient amounts manually.

ESHA partnership boosts transparency

With the DataLink application, anytime an update is made to a supplier ingredient in TraceGains, users will now be able to review a side-by-side comparison of the nutrient data and import the updated information directly into the Genesis R&D database. If users find no matching items, they can then create a new ingredient in the database.

“Food manufacturers need easier ways to manage supplier ingredient information across all platforms,” ESHA Research CEO Craig Bennett explained. “Together, we’ll provide our shared customers with a simplified solution for updating supplier ingredient data.”

“We believe that, together, we can now offer the complete solution food and beverage companies have been looking for,” TraceGains CEO Gary Nowacki added. “Faced with ever-changing nutritional labeling challenges, our shared customers will now have a ready solution for a rapid market response.”

ESHA Research, founded in 1981, offers a variety of nutritional analysis and label development solutions to ensure regulatory compliance. ESHA Research also offers software and regulatory compliance consulting and label-generation services.

Elizabeth Salvo from ESHA Research recently joined TraceGains to discuss the latest labeling changes. Salvo is director of regulatory and consulting services at ESHA Research. Watch the on-demand webinar recording here.
