And Get In Touch with a Beverage Expert

Keeping control of your product’s quality from start to finish means having a well-designed program backed with impeccable data. Through our full-service laboratory, The Lab-Powered by BevSource, we provide quality assurance testing to help you ensure that your beverage’s consistent quality serves as an asset to your brand. We help our clients with microbiology analysis, nutritional analysis and various food chemistry analyses.

Consistent Quality Counts

As you enter the beverage industry, you’ll find that consistency is a successful beverage’s most essential trait. From taste to texture to nutritional value and beyond, getting the details right matters for you and your customers.

Food and beverage testing laboratories assess a product’s contents to verify that the batch is correct. Lab professionals test the beverage in question for various criteria relating to its composition.

The testing process can confirm that a batch followed the recipe or uncover the chemical makeup of a brew you got just right. It can test a hard beverage’s alcohol by volume (ABV) percentage or a soda’s caffeine levels. It also confirms that a drink is free of unwanted minerals or chemicals.

Knowing what is in a beverage helps support the claims you market it by and deliver a consistent product.
