Food Constituents

Our Laboratory analyses foodWe test raw materials and food products according to recognised methods for all constituent and additive substances: examining the accuracy of the specifications, marketability, nutrition labelling. AGROLAB provides support in the development of sensible, risk-based testing plans and finds the right balance between safety and cost-effectiveness. More and more, we also advise retail chains on formal labelling issues for own-brand product ranges (e.g. Health Claims Ordinance, QUID, etc.). MORE

FAQ: How much sample material should be submitted for testing?

The quantity of sample material we require for our analysis depends on the relevant matrix, and also on the selection of test parameters. It is virtually impossible to provide a fixed formula. The following sample volumes could be taken as an initial guide, however:

  • For food in general: a minimum of 250 g per food item or 4 packs of a ready-for-sale product
  • For radiochemical testing: a minimum of 1 kg, or 1 L in the case of liquids
  • For GMO testing of crops, please send us a sample that roughly corresponds to 1000-kernel weight

Hygiene Testing

We can gladly assume responsibility for microbiological quality testing and the accompanying monitoring of your plant hygiene.
