Food and Beverage Industries

ACD/Labs offers an array of software tools to aid with exploration of new or natural components for product development; toxicity, metabolism, ADMET, and degradation research; and with comprehensive testing of food and beverage products to ensure safety and shelf life.

Find Relevant Components Faster

From quality control and pesticide testing of both raw materials and final products, resolving off-flavor or complaint situations, or solving plant issues; to competitive analysis and patent infringement investigations, a variety of spectroscopic tools are used. The ability to access experimental measurements from numerous instruments and various analytical techniques, and apply advanced interpretation algorithms to quickly find the answer is the distinctive approach of ACD/Labs. Our customers also value the ability to access commercial spectral databases, as well as build their own databases to share across their organization and speed up future projects.

Evaluate ADMET, Bioavailability, and Environmental Fate

While creating novel food and beverage formulations, new constituents, flavors, sweeteners, and natural ingredients are frequently tested for their impact on humans and living organisms. Predictive and QSAR tools, and aids for chemical structure optimization offered within the ACD/Percepta portfolio, are the industry standard in understanding the future behaviour of new chemical entities, allowing scientists to optimize on a variety of physicochemical and biological endpoints, from "anti-Rule-of-five" to human metabolism models, and more.

Nutritional Foods

ACD/Labs offers over a decade of experience in helping the pharmaceutical industry develop better drugs, faster. As investment in nutritional research grows—aiming to develop new medical food categories—a broad array of software solutions is available to help with natural product analysis; estimation of the toxicity, ADME, and bioavailability properties; and spectroscopic and chromatographic analysis.
