The demand for NALAB has increased significantly in the past few years and is projected to continue. KTL’s presentation will describe the complexities associated with adding a NALAB beverage to a product portfolio and break down the requirements and considerations into actionable pieces. It will also discuss relevant food safety risks in traditional beer, such as allergen cross-contamination, chemical inclusion, and foreign object inclusion. Specifically, the presentation will cover the following:

  • Interpretation and breakdown of the regulatory requirements for NALAB products.
  • Differences in FDA regulatory requirements for traditional beer versus NALAB products.
  • Known or reasonably foreseeable food safety hazards associated with traditional beer and NALAB products. 
  • Strategies that brewers can take to minimize food safety hazards.
