The food that arrives on our tables today is exposed to more chemical, microbiological, and environmental contaminants than ever before. In fact, 48 million Americans suffer from foodborne illnesses each year, with children under 5 years old being the most vulnerable.1
Cultural diversity and expanding palettes introduce fare from locales far and wide, and every new fad diet or health initiative intensifies the rush to be “first to market” with the newest, most novel, and most forward-thinking products.
But, consumer safety needs to be the top priority. People need to know that what they feed themselves and their families isn’t going to hurt them. Food testing can help mitigate that risk. There’s a place for analytical testing and place for database testing and it’s important you know which is most appropriate for your product. Our new quiz can help you decide.
