Analysis of Oil Matrices with FoodLab
Neotron conducted a study with the aim of comparing the repeatability of FoodLab tests in relation to the determination of the Peroxide Value and Free Fatty Acid in vegetable oil matrices with the repeatability obtained in the laboratory using methods approved by ACCREDIA:
- Attachment II of EEC Regulation 2568/91 for the determination of Free Fatty Acid (FFA)
- Attachment III of EEC Regulation 2568/91 for the determination of the Peroxide Value (PV)
- ISO 660 for the determination of Free Fatty Acid
- ISO 3960 for the determination of the Peroxide Value
The following oil matrices were tested:
- Peanut oil
- Grape seed oil
- Olive oil
- Rectified olive oil
- Extra virgin olive oil
Neotron expressed the following conclusions:
"The comparison of the correlation coefficients shown in the two tables demonstrated that method ensures performances that are equivalent to those that can be obtained by using the method described in Attachment II of EEC Regulation 2568/91 for the determination of Free Fatty Acid (FFA) and the ISO 660 method, The results also show that the system is in line with the analytical tolerances applicable to test laboratories. Even for the test related to the determination of Free Fatty Acid (FFA), it was observed that, if appropriately calibrated, FoodLab enables to dose oil matrices of different origin.
These excellent analytical results along with the easiness of use and extraordinary versatility make of this system a precious tool that can be widely used whenever analytical controls are required. "
