Assessment of nutrient content in selected dairy products for compliance with the nutrient content claims

Anna Sadowska-Rociek , Barbara Mickowska , Ewa Cieślik


The aim of this study was to determine the content of protein, fat, and carbohydrates in selected homogenised cheeses, available on Polish market. Results were compared with the values declared by the manufacturers. The main protein content was equal to 6.6 g/100 g, fat content – 4.7 g/100 g, and carbohydrates content – 11.3 g/100 g. However, content of nutrients varied and depended on the manufacturer and the cheese flavour. Nutrient content claims were often different from the results obtained in our study: protein content resulted from this experiment was generally lower than declared by the manufacturers and obtained in our study fat content was higher than reported at the labels.
