As nutritional legislation increases, the proficiency of laboratories to provide accurate results to food manufacturers for labelling is critical, to help consumers make informed choices about the food they eat. Fapas offers the widest range of analyte/matrix proficiency test combinations for the food sector. The matrix used varies year on year, to provide different levels of real world samples.

Proximates including moisture, ash, total fat and nitrogen will be addressed within this proficiency test. Sodium and chloride are reported separately, not as salt.

Commercial infant food makes up a large proportion of infants' diets within an extremely important period of development. Usual characteristics of infant foods include the longer shelf life as oppose to fresh ingredients.

Fapas quality control materials make use of real food matrices from which to ensure direct comparisons can be made between your routine analysis and quality control results. From these insights your testing abilities can be safeguarded across the year to ensure the accuracy of your results is maintained through staff training activities and instrumentation calibration activities.
