Test Description

Within this quality control material your testing ability for a range of nutritional elements within pineapple juice can be evaluated.

Fruit juices (prepared) are subject to labelling regulations for nutritional parameters and analytical testing ensures compliance with the information presented on the labels. We provide sugar content both by Brix determination and by HPLC, as total sugars (and individual sugars, if relevant). Other proximates might include ash, total acidity and pH. The PTs also include nutritionally important elements and we vary the type of juice throughout the year.

Fruit Juices, including pineapple juice, enjoy vast consumption around the world, leading to increased pressure on producers and, in turn, supply chains. This can lead to manufacturers making increased use of additives to emulate and substitute for natural oranges. Accurate testing should be employed to verify any claims made by labels, such as no food additives or similar.

To ensure the effective testing required to highlight unscrupulous manufacturers or misleading labelling claims well-designed quality assurance programmes should be employed. To highlight areas of improvement Fapas quality control materials should be used to highlight and address bias within your testing activities, within a wider quality assurance programme. Using this technique steps to safeguard your high quality testing standards can be taken.
