Analytical Services

 

           The Institute of Nutrition has conducted academic services since 1978 in order to support nutrition, food and food safety research, as well as to develop nutritive value information for Thai foods. The service is conducted by scientists who have been trained on food analysis from famous institutes in Europe, such as the CIVO (Toxicology and Nutrition Institute), TNO, Zeist in the Netherlands, and the Institute of Food Research in Norwich, England. The Institute of Nutrition provides analytical services for public and private agencies according to the Food Act of the Ministry of Public Health. The service is accepted by the Food and Drug Administration of the Ministry of Public Health as a laboratory that can analyze food samples for registration. At present, the laboratory can analyze more than 25 different types of foods.

  • It is the first agency in Thailand to offer analytical services and full nutrition labeling for the USA and Thailand.
  • The agency regularly organizes a training workshop on developing analysis quality. The Institute is keen on potential development and high quality laboratory analysis. Hence, it conducts research and develops food reference samples for use in laboratory studies or in regular proficiency testing.
