Baby Foods

Wholesome nutrition is vital in the nutritional requirements and overall growth of a baby. Infants and young children are particularly vulnerable to foodborne illness because their immune systems are not developed enough to fight the foodborne bacterial infections. Therefore, they require the highest quality of baby food available. 

At FARE Labs, we ensure that analysis of baby food is performed as per the stringent regulations. Toxic residues that may result from cultivation or production must be reduced considerably more in baby food products than for other food products. Government regulations and dietary regulations define specific nutritional requirements and limits for contaminants that are far below conventional ones.

We can support you with a monitoring plan tailored to your products and requirements. Our state-of-the-art instruments such as GC, HPLC, GC-MS/MS and LC-MS/MS are capable of measuring concentrations even at the levels of ppb (parts per billion) and ppt (parts per trillion), thus ensuring that your products are safe to consume.

We offer a variety of analyses, including the complete portfolio of nutritional label claim testing of baby food covering all vitamins, minerals and other nutritional tests by internationally approved test methods. We also perform testing for mycotoxins, migration testing (e.g. primary and secondary packaging), antibiotics residues, pesticides residues, other contaminants, allergen testing (including gluten, peanut, Soya, mustard and many more), test for organisms and indicator germs that include indicator organisms, pathogenic bacteria and their toxins. We also offer microscopic analysis, inhibitor testing, sterility testing, hygiene checks, shelf life studies, GMO testing and the analysis of microorganisms such as hygiene-related bacteria and spoilage microorganisms.
