Eating too much added sugar is linked to obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. But, at the moment, it can be difficult and expensive to stick to low sugar or sugar-free diet. Sugar-free product contains a maximum of 0.5g of total sugar per 100ml for a drink or 0.5g of sugar per 100g for a food product.
SUGAR FREE PRODUCT APPROVAL PROCESS
The basis of sugar free certification is sampling and testing in ILAC-ISO 17025 accredited laboratories. These technical food laboratories will perform tests on the samples according to ACS and product requirements and will submit a complete report of the tests to ACS. Our technical team will approve or disapprove the product by reviewing the results and testing comparisons. If the result does not comply with requirements, a non-conformities report will be provided to the applicant. If the test results are confirmed a Sugar free certificate is issued to the manufacturing company /producer and then the Sugar free product logo is awarded to the holder.
BENEFITS OF SUGAR-FREE CERTIFICATION
The sugar-free logo on consumer products assists consumers to be healthier with food choices.
The sugar-free label guarantees a product is low in free sugars and “better for you” from a sugars perspective than a similar product would be.
Products that have been certified by ACS, will receive a Sugar-free symbol on the product label.
ACS uses accelerated learning techniques to make sure you fully understand all certificates. We put your learning into context with a diverse offering of classroom teaching, workshops, interactive and online sessions.
