Food analysis and testing
Food analysis looks at the sensory, chemical, microbiological and physical properties of food and drink, and
is an important part of quality assurance, regulatory compliance and product development. Food analysis is required for a wide variety of reasons -
from testing suitability for purpose, through checking shelf-life or authenticity,
to assuring legal compliance. It is important to use the correct analytical tool in order to get meaningful answers to questions.
We have a food testing laboratory that can perform chemical and
microbiological analyses. We also have extensive expertise in food testing including the analysis of the
physical properties of foods, the identification of chemical, microbiological and physical
contaminants (e.g. glass, insects, stones and metal), determining whether a food is
what its label says it is, and the evaluation of how a product tastes and
what the consumer thinks of it. We are also involved in
developing and evaluating the methods themselves.
We also carry out specialist analyses for wheat and flour and
We offer a comprehensive analytical and testing service to support the needs of the milling and baking
industries. The service includes
comprehensive cereal, flour and dough rheology testing. The expertise driven service is supported by extensive particle reduction and
measurement facilities. The laboratory provides testing accredited to ISO17025:2005 by UKAS.
