VITAL Online Helpful Hints – ‘Create a VITAL Action Level Grid Report’

VITAL hints

Create a VITAL Action Level Grid Report to see the Action Levels that determine the labelling outcomes for each cross contact allergen for your product.

It is essential to determine Action Levels for individual products – as the Action Level is calculated from the Reference Amount (e.g. Serving Size) of the product. Careful consideration is required to set a Reference Amount for the product.

To create a VITAL Action Level Grid for your product in VITAL Online, go to the REPORTS tab in the dashboard at the top of the screen. Click on ‘Create a VITAL Action Level Grid Report’. Enter the relevant Reference Amount (e.g. Finished Product Serving Size) in grams. ‘Download’ the report to view the VITAL Action Level Grid for that Reference Amount.

An example of a VITAL Action Level Grid (where the Reference Amount is 50g) is shown below.
