Chemical analysis

Understanding the chemical make-up of your products is essential for a variety of reasons: health claims, nutrition labelling and allergen warnings to name but three, but there are many other aspects of food chemistry that need to be appreciated, so that you can address problems when they arise, and even prevent them from occurring.

As well as the 'normal' nutritional composition of food, you need to know about levels of natural toxicants and allergens, and of potential contaminants, such as pesticides and packaging migrants. At Campden BRI we have a wealth of knowledge, skills and state-of-the-art equipment (such as gas chromatography and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry) for chemical analysis and related issues, such as meat content calculations.

We also administer and take part in Proficiency Schemes, which are designed to monitor and improve the quality of analytical laboratories. One such is the Brewing Analytes Proficiency Scheme (BAPS).
