Beverages (Alcoholic & Non-alcoholic)

Every year, the global beverage market expands and becomes more diverse and fast-paced, fluctuating frequently as new consumer trends arise, such as vitamin-fortified water, energy drinks, anti-aging water, sports drinks, and so on. To help track contamination, adulteration, product consistency, and assure regulatory compliance from raw components (water, additives, and fruits) to the finished product, i.e., alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, the compositional quality and safety of all beverages must be monitored. FARE Lab is a well-known name in the beverage industry for delivering analytical solutions. Because our teams of professionals can accompany you through the whole product life cycle from concept to commercialization, we provide rapid, accurate, and comprehensive solutions, which is critical for our customers and the key to their success. We are here to guide and support you with industry-leading technology, state-of-the-art facilities, and simple access to experts when complex situations arise, whether it be product development, product and ingredient testing, shelf-life studies, challenge studies, or consultancy.

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) and the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) are the two main regulatory authorities in India that create rules to ensure the quality of both raw and finished products. Internationally, the FAO and WHO’s Codex Alimentarius, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) are some of the beverage testing standards that are used.

FUNCTIONAL BEVERAGES

If you are producing or selling beverages with added functional ingredients, you should verify the levels of activities and match your nutritional or dietary supplement facts panel. Our technical team of experts have the capability to analyze your raw ingredients for purity, identity, and contaminants and shelf life.

FERMENTED & PROBIOTIC

Kombuchas, Kefirs, and other probiotic and fermented beverages require special attention as these types of matrices contain complex microbiological environments which need special testing methods and strain-specific enumeration procedures. FARE Labs is a leading testing laboratory for probiotic testing, partnering with many probiotic suppliers for their regulatory and other requirements.

CARBONATED FRUIT BEVERAGES

Juices, juice-based drinks, and soft drinks pose unique challenges compared to other beverages. With the use of unique processes such as cold fill, pasteurization, aseptic, HPP, etc. a lot of problems can arise. Seeking assistance from FARE Labs can help to boost both safety and quality of your finished products, and to check for the different levels of natural juices, sugars/sweeteners, and acidulants. Some common parameters as requested by our customers include fruit content and total soluble solids.

ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES

Kombucha, Kefir, and other probiotic and fermented beverages require extra care since they include diverse microbial habitats that necessitate specialised testing methodologies and strain-specific enumeration procedures. FARE Labs is a major probiotic testing facility that works with a number of probiotic producers to meet their regulatory and other testing needs.
