Consumers are increasingly concerned about the quality and nutritional content of food. Additionally, regulations govern how nutrients are labeled on packaged foods. Food companies must balance consumer and government requirements in food labeling.
This translates into increased pressures for the food industry to ensure accurate and compliant nutrition labels. Nutrition Labeling provides a standardized way for food manufacturers to communicate with their customers.

Nutrition Labeling by Calculated Analysis
Mérieux NutriSciences offers nutrition analysis by calculated (database) analysis. Calculated analysis is a computerized analysis using a Nutrition Database software (e.g. Genesis R & D®). Calculated analysis may be appropriate for certain products that have not undergone extensive processing (e.g. fried, cooked, baked). There are no physical samples to send into a lab. Instead, detailed records of your products formulation and ingredients are necessary to build the nutrient profile. Our Food Labeling Compliance Specialists will help you determine if your product is appropriate for calculated analysis.
Nutrition Fact Label Development
Mérieux NutriSciences offers nutrition fact label development services should you need to see how your analytical results look formatted into a mock label. Our Food Labeling Compliance Specialists can also review your current label design to ensure it meets applicable regulations.
