A healthy and safe life is everyone's wish. We now live longer than before, and the rapid changes of our society have created a great deal of difficulties in securing our lives.
Chemical analysis, hygienic control, evaluation of products' quality and other analytical activities are needed more urgently than ever in various fields. A wide range of analytical services offered by Japan Food Research Laboratories cover not only food and feed products but also medicines, cosmetics, medical devices, household chemical products. Japan Food Research Laboratories answer the diversified needs for health and safety of societies, industries and consumers.
In Japan, the new food labeling act has been enforced since April 2015 and allowed the third official category for health-claim-foods, Food with Function Claims (FFC).
According to the new act, food manufacturers can label the function claim on their products under their own responsibility. FFC must be based on the scientific evidence for both safety and effectiveness. As an additional requirement, the application to the authority should be completed and opened for the public at least two months before marketing.
JFRL offers testing services for FFC through our analytical knowledge, experience, and reliance. By the end of 2015, we have contributed over 80 % of the FFC applications.
