WHAT IS NOVEL FOOD TESTING?

Novel food refers to innovative food or ingredients that do not have a history of safe use. They may be genetically engineered or produced through advanced technology processes and/or food that has not been traditionally consumed. 

Novel food testing ensures that food products meet the regulatory requirements and are free from harmful chemicals for human consumption. 

Experts at TÜV SÜD can provide and propose suitable test methods based on the respective regulatory requirement or product’s nature. 

WHY IS NOVEL FOOD TESTING IMPORTANT?

Novel food, such as plant-based meat and cultivated meat, is expected to be more commonly available in the near future for environmental benefit and sustainability. Currently, cultured meat has only been approved in Singapore for sale. However, in the coming years, more countries will be looking into the sale and consumption of these meat. 

As many are still skeptical about the safety of novel food, it is crucial for the product to undergo stringent quality checks through testing. By adhering to the food safety guidelines, it helps to ensure consumers' health is not compromised.
