Hi all,

I've been trying to find some nutritional data for Bay Leaves.  

The only database I can find that has a publicly available nutritional value is the USDA site (all others seem to reference this info), however in New Zealand there is a category that we need to state which is not listed on the USDA database.

Basically, under the Carbohydrate category, I need a figure for sugars.  This is to work out a finished product nutritional panel (that bay leaves are an ingredient of).

Has anyone done testing themselves, or know of a database that I could get this information from?

Thanks

Hi Primadeli,

 

Is there a certified lab in your area/country that you can send batches of Bay Leaves to get tested for the sugars and any other category you require?

Yep, Many labs, but we are a small company with a limited income and I didn't want to waste money doing this testing for an ingredient that is used in a small amount in only one product. Especially if the info is already available elsewhere.

 

I finally got a response from the supplier with an entire nutritional which, incidentally, is quite different to the USDA one.

 

But thank you to everyone who looked at this.
