Nutritional Labeling: Laboratory Based Analysis or Database Analysis?

Mon, 13 Aug 2012 10:20:50 EST

Cinnaminson, NJ, August 9th, 2012
 
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires food labeling for most prepared foods. The two most common methods for determining the nutritional content of food products are the Laboratory Based Analysis and Database Analysis methods.  Each method has its advantages and disadvantages and the decision to choose a method is usually up to the customer.
 
Laboratory based nutritional analysis methods require a physical sample of the product be sent to the laboratory. The samples are then prepped and analyzed using various scientific instruments and techniques to yield data that is specific and unique to the product.
 
Laboratory based nutritional analysis can be used for virtually any food type, including:
• General nutritional labeling needs
• Validating manufacturer or supplier nutritional information
• Validating data generated from software based database analysis
• Analyzing products containing unique or exotic ingredients or processing techniques
• Analyzing food for animals
 
Database analysis requires that the formula for the product, along with detailed information about each ingredient and product processing information, be submitted in writing to the laboratory. Typically, no physical sample is required.  Database analysis can be used for products that have common ingredients and products that have minimal processing, cooking, baking or drying.
 
Database analysis is not recommended when validation of nutrients is needed, for products that have unique or exotic ingredients, for products with ingredients for which there is no nutritional data available, or for products that undergo extensive processing.
 
This method can only be used for human foods, uses includes:
• Recipe overview
• Ingredient statement
• Allergen statement
• Nutrient content claims
• Nutrient value per serving
