Sweden is one of few countries that has conducted and continuously conducts analysis projects to increase and quality-assure data for its food database. In all likelihood, analyses of nutrients will become even more vital as stricter labelling laws are introduced in the European Union.
Listed below are the accredited methods we use, including limits of quantification.
Please contact us if you would like further information and/or prices for the analyses we offer.
