Sports Nutrition Labels

Even if consumer laws didn't exist, in the world of calorie and macro counting, there are few things as important as a nutrition label.

What are Sports Nutrition Labels

The sports nutrition market is wide and it’s growing. Since 2020, the industry trends have changed rapidly and brands are working hard to keep up with demand.

But what is sports nutrition? In a nutshell, it’s any type of supplement, additive, food replacement or diet product that specifically supports stamina or athletic ability. Usually very high in proteins, fats, and complex carbohydrates products are consumed to develop muscle mass and recovery. Products come in liquid form, powders, food-bars, supplement pills and gels, all of which of course require labelling.

Here at CS Labels, we understand that labelling for sports and nutrition products aren’t just about the name and imagery. One thing that is consistent across all sports nutrition product labels is that they all need to be clear, cleanly printed and easy to read.

Whilst the industry is currently unregulated, it’s super important that sports and nutritional product labels include the following:

  • Information about the ingredients and nutritional values, e.g. Calories, Sugars, Protein, Vitamins and minerals
  • Instructions and guidance on consumption, e.g. serving size
  • Product ingredients
  • Manufacturer name, address and contact details


And, because we print everything digitally, manufacturing labels for different product sorts, for example, flavours, it’s all part of what we do and there are no additional costs to print 10 different SKUs, and if any of the products of their flavours change, it’s never a problem.

Sports nutrition products can be bought in small bottles, big bottles, sachets, tubs, bars, or boxes and may be available in different flavours or ranges of different nutritional values. Either way, a good, high-quality label is important.

Different brands have different images. Some are light, glossy white labels with simple fonts, and others are colourful, vibrant and bold; many brands use deep blues and blacks with metallic colouring within their branding. It depends on what type of consumer is being targeted.

So, whether your sports nutrition product is a clean, crisp, clinical brand, or it uses dark and moody matt tones with high-definition imagery or even bright, colourful, vibrant graphics, at CS we can deliver the labelling you want and need.

Nutrition Label Material Options

Labels can be manufactured in the following materials:

  • White Polypropylene (PP)
  • Silver Polypropylene (PP) which is suitable for metallic printing using Color Logic
  • Clear Polypropylene (PP)
  • White Polyethylene (PE)
  • Matt
  • Semi-gloss or kraft paper.

Ever considered a printed pouch? Our sister brand CS Pouches manufacture digitally-printed, high-definition printed pouches. Experienced in pouches from small sachets up to 2kg protein powder pouches, why not print across the entire packaging rather than apply a label.

“If your product label requires a high volume of information, we also have solutions for that, such as wrap-around labels or peel and reveal. If you’re looking for something more tailored, why not speak to our team at CS for high-definition printed pouches for your protein powders or bars.”


Are Sports Nutrition Products Just for Athletes?

Not at all. You might find sports nutrition products beneficial if you are working out more, or working towards a specific fitness goal.

Can I Get a Label That Peels Away Showing Text on The Underside?

Yes, this wraparound style is available as well as a peel and reveal label which can have multiple layers including text, imagery and also in full-colour.

Is It Better to Have a Front and Back Label Instead of One Big Label?

It really depends on how you want your product to look. It’s often a good idea to take your product and try and mock up the labelling in different ways, you may learn which style you prefer that way.

If I Want to Print My Sports Nutrition Label but There Are 5 Different Colours and Flavours, Is It Cheaper to Print Them Separately or Together at The Same Time?

At CS there’s no additional cost to print multiple designs in a single run. We don’t use print plates, so even if your design were to change, there wouldn’t be any cost to change what is being printed. Of course, you may find it more cost-effective to place an order for everything you need together, but if you speak to our CS Labels team, we can advise you either way.
