Nutritional analysis is essential to provide a clear product description and to ensure compliance with local and international labeling standards. According to each individual case, the declared values shall be average values based on: (a) the manufacturer’s food analysis (b) a calculation from the known or actual average values of the ingredients used; or (c) a calculation from generally established and accepted data like the international dietary guidelines known as Guideline Daily Amounts (GDA).
What we test for
We perform nutritional testing to determine the dietary and nutrient content of all kinds of foods and food products, such as food supplements. We calculate GDA’s and add nutritional information- such as the energy value (kJ/kcal) of your food product in terms of:
- Fat (g) of which saturates, mono-unsaturates, polyunsaturates
- Carbohydrate (g) of which sugars
- Protein (g)
- Fibre (g)
- Salt (g)
Further analysis may extend to other nutrients
- Vitamin: A and C
- Trans fat
Food Label review
Mislabeling can lead to reputational damage, so we make sure that our food technologists review your product to ensure regulatory compliance and proper ingredient listing. Yearlong technical expertise and market knowledge allows us to verify compliance with the latest regulations so that your products will be in line with the requirements of the local and European legislation.
Our qualified experts provide food label reviews, translation and marketability certification. The process takes place in 2 stages.
- In stage 1 of the reviewing process we review and translate the label text into Greek. We recalculate GDAs and add nutrition information – such as calories, grams of sugar, fat, saturated fat and salt – per serving as a percentage of the GDA and then return them to you for further processing
- In stage 2 of the reviewing process you return to us the final artwork of the translated labels for final approval.
