•one shelf life, expressed either in days, or in month, or in years: during the impression of the label, the date of conservation will be automatically calculated by addition of this duration at the current date of impression ;

•a zone additional, which will appear under the composition in the label. This zone makes it possible to add all useful mentions ('indication of use, of the conditions of conservation,…), in a specific format (alignment, cast iron, etc…), this zone being completely modifiable by the integrated editor (accessible by click on the right button from the mouse)
And finally, by the ingredients entering the composition. Each ingredient is indicated by
