Nutraceuticals, herbs & dietary supplements
Nutritional products are more widely available than ever before, but consumers want to know exactly what is in the products that they are ingesting. Sports nutrition products, meal replacement drinks, medical formulas, vitamins, minerals and natural food supplements make up a huge market for a demanding audience.
Nutritional testing can help manufacturers ensure that their products contain the right amount of amino acids, fatty acids, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins, anti-nutrients, enzymes and other critical ingredients.
How Eurofins can help
Local regulations in each country have been established to standardize nutrition information found on all food products, and to require foods baring nutrient content or health claims to comply with specific requirements set in place. Determining what is needed for nutritional labeling can be an overwhelming process, but Eurofins can help you with the nutritional analysis and labeling of your product.
