Description
Nutritional Analysis / Labeling

 

EMSL Analytical, Inc. offers Nutritional Database analysis compliant with FDA Labeling Laws. We utilize the prestigious Genesis® SQL Database produced by Esha Research.


Nutritional Database analysis requires that the formula for the product, along with detailed information about each ingredient and product processing information, be submitted in writing to the analyzing laboratory. Typically, no physical sample is required to be submitted. Database analysis can be used for products that have common ingredients and products that have minimal processing, cooking, baking or drying.


Database analysis is not recommended when validation of nutrients is needed, for products that have unique or exotic ingredients, for products with ingredients for which there is no nutritional data available, or for products that undergo extensive processing. This method can only be used for human foods.


EMSL Analytical, Inc. also offers Laboratory based Nutritional analysis compliant with FDA Labeling Laws. Laboratory based nutritional analysis methods require a physical sample of the product(s) be sent to the laboratory. The samples are then prepped and analyzed in the laboratory using various scientific instruments and techniques to yield data that is specific and unique to the product.

 
Laboratory based nutritional analysis can be used for virtually any food type. This method can be used for:

  • General Nutritional Labeling needs

  • Validating manufacturer / supplier nutritional information

  • Validating data generated from software based database analysis

  • Product contains unique or exotic ingredients or processing techniques

  • Analyzing food for animals (pet foods and agricultural feeds)

  • Accurate nutrient per 100g values are needed for CofA’s or Database inclusion

 

Reports will feature values per 100g and per serving size (when provided) of the product. Where applicable, % RDI and % DV values will also be provided. Additional voluntary nutrients are available – please inquire.
