Nutritional Analysis for Food

To perform nutritional analysis on your food products we take into account a wide range of factors. These are based on international dietary guidelines known as Guideline Daily Amounts (GDA).

What we test for

We perform nutritional analysis to provide detailed information about the nutrient content of your dietary products. We issue 2 types of nutritional declarations.

We calculate the energy value of your food product in terms of:

  • Protein
  • Fat
  • Carbohydrate
  • Sugar
  • Salt

We perform further analysis of sugars and fats to trace and calculate:

  • Elements
  • Vitamins
  • Other nutrients

How we complement your nutritional declaration

We calculate GDAs and add nutrition information – such as calories, grams of sugar, fat, saturated fat and salt – per serving as a percentage of the GDA.

GDAs / Energy per 100g

  • Carbohydrate: sugars and starch
  • Fat: saturated fat, mono-unsaturated fat, poly-unsaturated fat and trans fat
  • Fibre
  • Salt
