A CN label statement clearly identifies the contribution of a
product toward the meal pattern requirements. It protects
a school from exaggerated claims about a product.
A CN label provides a warranty against audit claims, if used
according to the manufacturer's directions.
Are CN labeled products more
nutritious than similar non-CN labeled products?
No. While a CN-labeled
product is guaranteed to contain a certain quantity of food, it does
not indicate that the quality of the food is any different than a
non CN-labeled food. Neither does it mean the foods are safer
to eat or free of pathogens or allergens.
