Test Description

Fat is an essential part of the human diet, supplying nutritional components that the body needs in order to function. Too much fat in the diet, especially of nutritionally undesirable forms, can give rise to health problems. Hence, fat is subject to labelling requirements on food products and analyses are targeted towards this compliance.

Fats within infant formula are integral for infant development, and as such should be tested to validate any claims made by manufacturers, as well as highlighting any poor quality products that may be passed to consumers.

Legislative bodies require extensive testing measures to be undertaken to ensure products meet labelling requirements.

Quality control materials can be utilised to track the improvements made within your quality assurance activities. This is in addition to the effective standardisation work that can be done with Fapas quality control materials, where credible, reliable test results can be obtained.
