Food Nutrition Analysis

Food Nutritional Analysis To Produce A Nutrition Facts Label For Your Food Product

This service is sometimes needed if your food product couldn’t be analyzed through our database software and lab analysis is required.

Turnaround is up to 25 business days from the time that our lab receives your samples.

Sometimes Food Nutritional Analysis is needed to produce your nutrition facts labels. Occasionally, some clients would prefer not to disclose their proprietary recipe. How foods are processed can also require lab testing. For example, brined, marinated, fried, fermented or brewed products often need lab testing. If your recipes cannot be analyzed through our database software, then you would send a sample to our lab for analysis.

Your results report shows the nutrient values required by the FDA for Nutrition Facts Labels. These include: Calcium, Calories from Fat, Total Calories, Total Carbohydrates, Cholesterol, Trans-fat, Saturated Fat, Total Fat, Dietary Fiber, Iron, Protein, Sodium, Sugars, Vitamin D, Potassium. (Ash and Moisture results are also included.) If you choose to add the Label option to your order, we use the information from your report to produce your FDA compliant Nutrition Facts Label.

Are you not sure if you will need lab analysis? Call us! During your initial conversation, our experts will advise you whether your food product will need testing to produce your nutrition labels.

Frequently Asked Questions

Get answers to your questions on Nutrition Analysis

Why does food nutritional analysis take so long?

Nutritional analysis requires a separate test for each nutrient, and each test uses a different AOAC method. Dietary fiber alone requires 14 days, as it uses bacterial consumption to replicate human digestion and absorption. To stay organized and ensure your results are 100% accurate, food nutritional analysis requires 25 business days for turnaround.

How long does food nutritional analysis take?

The turnaround time for lab analysis can be up to 25 business days from the time our lab receives your samples.

How do I pack my food product when shipping it to the lab?

We will need ½ pound of finished product to complete the testing.

Please do not ship your samples in glass containers (most clients use a plastic storage container). If your product is a liquid, make sure your container is leak-proof.

If your product is refrigerated, include a sufficient number of cold packs to keep it cool during the entire shipping process.

Ship your sample overnight or by two-day air, either using FedEx or UPS. Please ship your product to our lab address, which is provided on the Lab Information Form that you will receive via email before billing.


How do I know if I will need laboratory analysis to order a Nutrition Facts Label?

Because of their complex nature, these foods commonly need laboratory analysis:

  • Fermented products, such as beer or wine
  • Complex recipes that may be brined or marinated, such as a beef jerky
  • Brewed products, such as coffee or tea

Please contact us to discuss your food product. We can determine if your product will need laboratory testing.

In order to get a nutrition label, do I have to send samples of my food product to a lab for testing?

Not all food products require analysis in a food testing lab in order to create a nutrition label. In fact, most food recipes can be analyzed through our database software, which is less expensive and less time consuming than lab analysis . Lab analysis involves sending food samples to our lab for testing and can provide results within 25 days. In comparison, database analysis (which loads your recipe’s ingredient information into our software for analysis) can provide results in as little as 2-3 days.

Can I pay for expedited services?

No. Our lab cannot accommodate rush orders.
