Food Testing

Food : a matter of trust, a matter of health .About 350 years back Dr. Harbert said, " Whatever was the father of a disease , ill diet was the mother." Modern food includes nutraceuticals, functional foods, and food for special dietary uses.

Food is any substance usually of plant or animal source and contains essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins or minerals provides nutritional supplement thereby stimulating growth to the body.
