Phytocontrol has developed its Food Physico-Chemistry department in addition to contaminant analysis in order to offer a complete solution for your analytical control plans.
Our analytical methods for calculating nutritional values strictly follow the new European INCO regulation.
Vitamins are organic substances that have no energy value but are essential for the body. The human body cannot usually produce them on its own, so they must be supplied in the diet.
Vitamin A plays an important role in growth and vision.
Vitamin C plays an important role in the absorption and utilisation of nutrients. It also contributes to the maintenance of immune function.
Vitamin E helps protect cell membranes and contributes to slowing down skin ageing. It is often used as a food preservative (E306 to E309) to prevent the spoiling of food by free radicals.
Human food: Regulation N°1169/2011 on nutrition labelling defines the requirements concerning the parameters that must appear in the nutrition declaration. The labelling of vitamins is not mandatory but they can be labelled in addition to other information.
Animal feed: Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 on additives for use in animal feed provides in Annex I the list of authorised additives in animal feed, including certain vitamins.
The fruit & vegetable, oilseed & fruit, oils, processed products, dairy products, meat products, juices & drinks (non-alcoholic), animal feed and food supplements sectors.
