Nutritional Analysis

Composition and nutritional testing enable food industries to meet regulatory labelling requirements and demonstrate the highest quality standards.

Our Composition & Nutrition Testing services

Consumers are increasingly concerned about the quality and nutritional content of food. Nutritional information such as sugar, salt and fat content must be confirmed and validated by analytical techniques in order to be accurately included on labels and packaging. 

Mérieux NutriSciences offers a wide range of nutritional analyses to assist food manufacturers, restaurants, caterers and retailers worldwide. Our nutritional chemistry tests provide reliable analyses of food products.
