Test Description

As nutritional legislation increases, the proficiency of laboratories to provide accurate results to food manufacturers for labelling is a key quality criterion, 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.

This proficiency test is based on commercially produced dry dog food that might be bought in a supermarket, and covers the routine nutritional components listed above.

Many consumers are health focussed, and accurate analysis is required so that labelling reflects the true levels of key ingredients such as sugars and fats so they are able to make an informed choice about the foods they purchase. Fapas proficiency tests can help you maintain these effective testing practices.
