In this article we'll explore the scenarios where you'd want to do lab analysis, how you can do it cheaper with ReciPal and how it works. Read on!


Lab Nutrition Analysis

Working with a lab for nutrition analysis can be more accurate for certain foods.

When and Why Do Lab Analysis

There are a few classic cases where you should strongly consider doing a lab analysis, and these are when it's difficult to estimate the nutritional changes occurring during processing. These situations might include:

These are just a few examples, but hopefully give you an idea of the types of foods you would want to consider doing a lab analysis rather than working with a database. Of course, you can still do database analysis for these foods, but it will be less reliable and accurate unless you do a lot of research and know what you're doing.

In general, if you aren't comfortable doing a database nutrition analysis or hiring someone to do it accurately, and have the budget, you should think about doing a lab analysis instead. It will give you more peace of mind let you focus on the other aspects of your business instead.
