Utah Food Product Testing

The Utah State University Cooperative Extension Food Safety Program can help small food entrepreneurs produce SAFE foods.

We can analyze your food product to determine the risks for foodborne illness (pathogen potential).  Please note that these services are performed as our time-permits.  We are not equipped for rapid turn-around.  Typically, analyses are completed within a few weeks and Process Authority letters are written shortly thereafter.  If Dr. Nummer is traveling, these times may be extended.  *If you need rush service we can provide a 3-7 day turn-around at an increased cost.  

Food product food safety analysis and "Process Letter"

Dr. Nummer is on sabbatical through December 2014.  During this time the availability of product safety testing services will be limited.  For more information, please use this form to provide a detailed description of your product and process, and the type of facility you will be working in (e.g. home kitchen, commercial/incubator kitchen, processing facility).

Nutrition Facts (Panel)

$45 / product -- Using your recipe a computer program generates a Nutrition Facts Panel in camera-ready format.  A complete recipe, servings per recipe, and container size are needed to calculate the nutritional information.  Alternatively, food entrepreneurs may use our computer to generate their own labels here in Logan, UT at no charge.  More Information
