Instant Coffee drinks are very popular, with growing markets around the world. However, they do contain several ingredients that you would not find in a cup of instant coffee that you made yourself. This test material offers a convenient combination of the common analytes required for nutritional labelling, such as fat, protein, carbohydrates, salt and sugar at measurable levels. It is a genuine commercial product, allowing you to test your methods at the concentrations commonly found and in a realistically complex product.
Consumers are continually health focussed, this is a key area for manufacturers to take advantage of and communicate any nutritional values and their benefits in an effort to persuade consumers to purchase their products. It is important, however, to ensure these claims are well-founded and accurate, as to not mis-inform consumers. Your effective testing arrangement is required to achieve this. Fapas proficiency tests can help you maintain these effective testing practices.
Proficiency tests are useful for maintaining high quality across a range of testing environments. Through the use of real food matrices your proficiency test results are immediately comparable to your routine testing activities, allowing you to highlight areas of improvement across your testing practices quickly and effectively. This ensures your end results are credible, and repeatable across a range of testing environments.
