Nutritional

The Nutrition Labeling and Education Act mandated nutritional labeling for most products. FDA requirements now mandate that manufacturers, processors and suppliers publish accurate nutritional information for their products.

To comply with the FDA guidelines, Exact Scientific Services, Inc. offers a comprehensive laboratory nutritional analysis panel. We are dedicated to meeting and exceeding customer expectations for accuracy, efficiency and quality.
