Test Description

Sweeteners such as aspartame and cyclamate are used in a range of foodstuffs, and soft drinks are no exception. Their use is highly regulated due to their potential effects when used in large quantities.

Soft drinks make regular use of sweeteners to ensure cost savings and products in line with consumer tastes of increasingly sweet products. This can give rise to potentially high levels of sweeteners in soft drinks which can in turn result in a range of potential side-effects. As such your effective testing practices are integral to ensuring only high quality, safe products are offered to consumers.

Your testing ability for sweeteners such as aspartame and cyclamate is important to maintain. Through the use of real food and drink matrices your testing ability can be evaluated and critiqued, to ensure continually high-quality test results are found and offered to consumers across a range of testing environments. This can cement your place as a highly accurate testing provider and continue to progress within this challenging and competitive food testing environment.

Fapas proficiency tests can be useful to benchmark your testing arrangement and can therefore be used to inform your wider quality assurance activities. These in turn maintain the highly accurate testing standards your laboratories require.
