Hi I’m Beth from RL Food Testing.
Many of our customers often ask us, What is Nutritional Analysis and do I need to get
it for my food product in order to get a nutrition facts panel label made?
Well in most cases your nutritional labeling needs can be done using a data-based software
analysis; however, sometimes laboratory analysis is necessary.
So let’s take a look at some examples of when lab testing would be needed.
Because of their complex nature these types of foods commonly need laboratory analysis:
fermented products such as a beer or wine; or complex recipes that are brined or marinated
such as a beef jerky; or brewed product such as a coffee or tea.
During your initial conversation, our specialist will be able to advise you of whether or not
you need laboratory testing for your food product.
When submitting your product for testing, you will need to ship at least a half of pound
of finished product to our lab, either Fedex or UPS, either overnight or two day air.
If your product is refrigerated, then please include sufficient amount of cold packs to
keep it cool. And please no glass containers. We will email you a form. Please print the
completed form and include it in with your samples.
Then you’ll make your payment on our secure website.
The turnaround time is 25 business days approximately from the time that we receive your samples
at our lab. So, if you have any questions or are ready
to please your order, just give us a call or email us. We’re standing by 7 days a week.
