Nutritional parameters remain a lively topic

Apr 14, 2021

Only recently, the European Commission launched a public consultation on the Nutri-Score rating system, within the Farm to Fork strategy.

This initiative seeks to make it easier for consumers to eat healthier by creating nutrient profiles with thresholds for nutrients such as fats, sugars or salt. A harmonized mandatory nutrition labelling on the front pack may follow.

ALS Czech offer a complete scope of analytical services to food manufacturers, wholesalers, retail chains and horeca industries.


ALS laboratories perform accredited analyses to ensure compliance with the EU labelling requirements, especially the Regulation No. 1169/2011, on the provision of food information to consumers.

Nutritional parameters can be determined separately or in nutritional packages, such as BIG 7 or BIG 8.
