Food & Drink
One of the biggest trends in the food and drink sector today is the increase in healthy foodstuffs and nutraceuticals. James Hutton Limited can provide a range of services and products to support the continued development of these.
From advice on sourcing different varieties of fruit and vegetables or analysing foodstuffs for a range of nutrition and health components such as polyphenols, anthocyanins and beta-glucans, to helping food and drink companies make the most of waste streams or minimise environmental impact from production, James Hutton Limited can provide invaluable support in a wide range of sustainability areas and can also assist in identifying the key environmental, social and economic impacts influencing the supply chain.
James Hutton Limited can offer a vast range of specialist microscopy services providing a number of advantages to the food and drink industry such as identifying foreign bodies in foodstuffs and monitoring a range of contaminants, including heavy metals in a wide range of products.
With mounting industry pressure to provide full traceability for all products, James Hutton Limited also provides a range of analytical methods to establish products as the genuine article - or not.
