Know What Is In Your Food
Not only can NEWAGE labs help keep your food products safe, but we can help improve the quality too! Quality finished products aren’t just about being safe. They’re about being nutritious and tasting great! That’s why our food lab tests for proteins, metals, acidity, and more to improve the quality of your food. We also combine our nutrient analysis with our shelf life research to provide shelf life studies to track quality over time.
Meat is one of the largest consumed food products in the country, and is a staple source of protein in many individual’s diets. As a member of the Michigan Meat Association, NEWAGE is dedicated to ensuring the highest quality meats. We provide protein testing to break down the nutritional crude protein levels in meats, meat products, and house pet food. In addition to protein, our lab can verify your dried meat products are not holding excess moisture.
Keeping Animals Healthy
We are not only focused on finished food products though. Quality meat comes from healthy animals, and we want to help raise the healthiest livestock here in the Midwest. Combining our agricultural and food safety expertise, we track the nutrients in your livestock hay fodder and silage via our feed and forage testing.
Track Your Quality
Discovering the nutritional quality of your food is insightful. However, many foods sits on the shelves of stores and pantries for weeks or even months! Even preserved and packaged food doesn’t keep forever, but NEWAGE food labs can help. We can iterate our nutrient analyses over the shelf life of a product to track how the quality maintains over its lifetime. We can combine this with our shelf life safety testing to keep track of food borne threats that may arise in your products.
Flavor And Preference Studies
Nutritional information is helpful when gauging food quality, but it’s not very important if the food isn’t as appealing. To consolidate your food testing needs, our lab can preferential studies on desirability parameters such as taste, color, aroma, etc, and correlate it along with your data to provide as much insight into your food quality as possible.
