The Nutrition Labeling and Education Act (NLEA) of 1990 authorized the U.S. Food & Drug Administration to require nutrient labeling on almost all foods sold domestically.  ANRESCO provides expertise in complying with FDA/USDA regulations on nutrient labeling and uses AOAC, FDA, USDA or equivalent recognized methods for all analyses.  ANRESCO has performed nutrient labeling analyses continually since 1973.

Anresco runs both "Luke" and "QuEChERS" multi-residue analyses (MRAs).  The "Luke" MRA has been the standard FDA method for over twenty years and is adequate for capturing most older pesticides.  The "QuEChERS" MRA is a relatively young method developed by the USDA.  It can pick up many of the newer pesticides but has matrix issues/limitations and requires consultation with Anresco staff prior to any submission.

For importers bringing product into the United States, most food related shipments are subject to examination by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA). Established in 1974 as a safety precaution to uphold import standards, the FDA has the authority to inspect a shipment, analyze samples, and place a product on Detention Without Physical Examination (DWPE) if sufficient evidence indicates a potential health risk for human consumption. A product placed on DWPE by the FDA may require the importer to overcome a “presumption of guilt” by having a private laboratory sample and analyze the product to prove it meets FDA standards.

Anresco Laboratories has offered DWPE sampling and analytical services since 1981 and today performs essentially every analysis required by the FDA. The FDA review process is sometimes complicated, changing, and unpredictable. However, Anresco Laboratories believes it has the finest analytical group for such testing of any private laboratory in the Unites States.
