Nutritional Labelling Testing Lab in Delhi, Bangalore India

Food testing lab for nutritional labelling

Are you a health-conscious citizen who checks the nutritional information on food products diligently whenever on a shopping spree?  Well, nowadays most of us are very careful about what we put in our body.

Hence there’s a massive push towards being extremely transparent about ingredients and nutritional value whenever it comes to food. 

To make it convenient to make healthier choices when it comes to food, the concept of nutrition labelling testing emerged and the policy of displaying nutrition information on the food items became mandatory in India.

Other than FSSAI, there are multiple local nutritional testing labs/services PAN India that analyze different food items and check whether they adhere to the FSSAI guidelines or not.

If you’re in the Food business or thinking of starting one, our nutrition analysis lab can help you meet state and national regulatory requirements with comprehensive nutrition labelling testing

Benefits of Nutritional Labeling

If you’re a business owner dealing in the foods and beverages industry, you understand the importance of food labelling. However, for someone who never stepped into the foods and beverages industry, getting started can be mind-boggling.

So, in this segment, we discuss two major benefits of nutritional labelling like:

  • It can benefit different food businesses as right nutrition label testing can accurately determine the nutrients information within the product adding value to it and creating awareness in the minds of consumers.
  • The results obtained from the nutritional analysis labs/laboratories allows consumers to compare different brands and make healthier food choices.


Nutritional labelling is also important for the government to approve the product for sale on the market. If proper nutritional analysis testing isn’t done by the manufacturer, it can create legal issues for the organization in case of a mishap.

Hence, nutrition test labs must check all food items carefully to ensure they are free of contaminants and include healthy nutrients as prescribed by the governing bodies.

The act also requires periodic food testing be carried out on the ingredients and products.

The information about the nutritional constituents like Vitamins, Minerals, protein along with their values in the food products & health supplements should be declared on the labels.

A constant check through regular food testing needs to be done on the nutritional ingredients in reference to the recommended values which are safe for human consumption.

The values for nutritional elements like, Vitamins, Minerals, Energy, Protein, Sugar, Fat should be under the prescribed dietary limits in the food items and this shall be printed on the labels based on results of food testing.

The food business operator has to mention the exact values of nutritional elements on the labels. The consumers have to be informed about the complete information on the labels so that they can make their choice while buying a food product.

A food label with facts on nutritional value serves as an important source of information to the consumers especially in case of children or people seeking a food product to fulfill their specific needs.
