Food Analytical Chemistry

Analytical Chemistry can determine the presence of a known chemical in a food. The nutritional value of food is determined by chemical analysis for components such as protein, fat and carbohydrates. Even the calorie content is calculated from chemical analysis. Our trained staff use state-of-the-art equipment in this practice.
