Chemical analysis of food studies the chemical composition and structure of food. Understanding the chemical make-up of products is
essential for a variety of reasons: health claims, nutrition labelling and allergen warnings. As well as the 'normal'
nutritional composition of food, it can help with assessing levels of
natural toxicants, allergens and 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).
