Food allergies and intolerances are a major public health concern for affected consumers, manufacturers and public health authorities. Although they affect only a small portion of our population, the health implications can be serious and immediate. This is the reason why EFSA and FDA require food products with allergenic ingredients to be labeled.
Consumers today want to be sure about the quality and origin of the foods they eat. To protect our customers in the food and food-supply chain from fraud and brand damage, Mérieux NutriSciences offers advanced methods of food authenticity testing.
