Concerns on misinformed levels of sodium in its products, has led speciality food company, China Nutrifruit Group to conduct independent laboratory tests on its glazed fruit products and concentrate juice.

The company, that manufactures products predominantly derived from fruits, was informed by a customer at the end of last year that its concentrate juice and glazed fruit products contained higher levels of sodium than stated.

A request for a full refund on the purchase, worth RMB50m (US$7.9m), has been made by the customer.

Verification of the claims is underway and further testing measures have been put in place throughout the manufacturing process to ensure product quality as a precaution, the company said.

Changjun Yu, chairman of China Nutriftuit, said the results of the tests will be made available as soon as it completed.
