With increasing legislation and consumer concerns on nutritional factors such as salt and fat content, it is recommended that nutritional information on packaging is confirmed by analytical techniques. Published data is based on averages and some cases limited data therefore it is essential to confirm the nutritional information prior to the generation of the label and to validate the information regularly by analysis for due diligence purposes.
Eurofins offers an extensive range of nutritional testing from our UK facilities to assist food manufacturers and suppliers with:
- compliance with food labelling legislation
- compliance with retailer specifications
- due diligence and quality control
- surveillance studies.
