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.
Apart from the well-known food analysis areas such as chemical and microbiological analyses, We 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.
