New Open Textbook: Nutrition and Labelling for the Canadian Baker

New Open Textbook: Nutrition and Labelling for the Canadian Baker

We are very happy to announce the release of a new open textbook, with significant contributions from post-secondary faculty in British Columbia.

OTB COVER Nutrition and Labelling for the Canadian Baker

This book is intended to give students a basic understanding of nutritional information and labelling in the baking industry. In particular, there is a focus on Canadian regulations regarding labelling and merchandising of baked goods, as well as baking for customers with special diets, allergies, and intolerances. Nutrition and Labelling for the Canadian Baker is one of a series of Culinary Arts books developed to support the training of students and apprentices in British Columbia’s food service and hospitality industry. Although created with the Professional Cook and Baker programs in mind, these have been designed as a modular series, and therefore can be used to support a wide variety of programs that offer training in food service skills.
