Chemistry Testing

Companies often seek chemistry testing services because they need to:

  • meet national and international codes, standards or regulations
  • meet labelling requirements to support nutritional claims 
  • follow manufacturing, quality control and quality assurance practice

Others, such as food manufacturers, send products for chemistry analysis as part of routine chemistry tests for food safety purposes.

We offer a comprehensive range of chemical analyses in food, beverage, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and veterinary products. We look at compositional, nutritional and safety related compounds.  

We also test and interpret the nutrient composition of products. For a list of the nutrients we test for, and the full scope of testing, please refer to the file on the right. To find out more about Nutritional Information Panel (NIP) testing, keep reading below.

More Info About Nutritional Information Panel (NIP)

A nutritional Information Panel is the table that is printed on food packaging. It outlines for consumers the key nutritional values of the product so that they can make informed purchasing decisions. We provide laboratory testing on food products that will give you the information needed to populate this table on your packaging.

A basic Nutritional Information Panel reflects the food labelling regulations set by the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI). Under these regulations the nutritional labelling of any food product must contain information about seven key nutrient components:

  • Protein
  • Total Fat
  • Saturated Fat
  • Carbohydrates
  • Energy
  • Sugar
  • Sodium

Moisture and ash are also included in the basic Nutritional Information Panel. These tests are needed to calculate the carbohydrate and energy values. It is not required that these tests be listed on the product labelling.
