Food & Drink
James Hutton Limited works closely with the food and drink industry in a wide range of capacities.
James Hutton Limited can assist with food provenance – if you need to know what it is and where it came from, we offer a breadth of analyses that can tell you.
We can provide authenticity testing to determine if a food stuff is what it says it is.
We have analyses that can check for contaminants, including pharmaceutical residues, foreign bodies and heavy metals, in ingredients and finished products.
And if needed, we can provide traceability for every stage of the production process.
A huge trend 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, analysing foodstuffs for a range of nutrition and health components such as polyphenols, anthocyanins and beta-glucans.
The majority of James Hutton Limited managed contract research projects are carried out in collaboration with businesses and organisations operating in the food and drink sector; from supermarkets to packaging experts, from growers to ag-tech entrepreneurs.
To meet the demands of a circular economy, James Hutton Limited can support food and drink businesses to maximise waste streams and minimise environmental impact from production – in fact, 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 is home to Mylnefield Lipid Analysis, a leading international laboratory for the specialist analysis of oils and fat.
