Mérieux NutriSciences offers complete nutrition labeling options to ensure compliant labels. We offer nutrition labeling by laboratory analysis, calculated analysis or a combination of the two. Our Regulatory Compliance Specialists will help you determine which method is appropriate for your product. A customer also has the option to have a US FDA or Health Canada label created for their product.
Nutrition Labeling by Laboratory Analysis Laboratory analysis is the gold standard in validating your nutrient profile or when nutrient content is unknown. You will send in your food products and Mérieux NutriSciences will analyze in our laboratories utilizing AOAC or equivalent methods run on various chemistry instrumentation. A Certificate of Analysis is produced with complete nutrient results.
Nutrition Labeling by Calculated 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.
We have all the tools to help you become compliant with labeling regulations. Contact us today to get started on your labeling project!
