Nutritional Food Label Analysis

Background

Since 1973, Anresco has performed trusted food nutrition and labeling analysis for thousands of companies, helping them to comply with FDA/USDA labeling regulations. In our food nutrition and labeling analysis, we use AOAC, FDA, USDA, or equivalent recognized methods. Enlist our expertise to help you navigate the changing regulatory requirements of the food industry.

The Nutrition Labeling and Education Act (NLEA) of 1990 authorized the U.S. Food & Drug Administration to require nutrient labeling on almost all foods sold domestically. Since then, the FDA has issued additional rules requiring nutritional labeling for foods in vending machines (November, 2014 ), at “chain” restaurants and grocery stores (December, 2014), as well as new requirements for packaged foods (July, 2015).
