How to determine the oxidation state and the shelf life of finished products, like bakery products, snacks and spreads
Determining the shelf life of baked products, snacks and spreads is fast and simple
Does your company produce bakery products, snacks and spreads? Are you looking for an instrument that can determine the shelf life of your products? We have the analysis system that is most appropriate for your business.
It is CDR FoodLab®, the testing system that determines the oxidation state of bakery products, spreads and snacks.
With CDR FoodLab®, the determination of the shelf life of bakery products, snacks and spreads does no longer require toxic solvents, complicated extraction processes, extractor hoods, or high costs for special waste disposal.
CDR FoodLab® is compact and handy and can be used in any environment: either in a laboratory, or at the production plant, or upon sale/purchase of the product. Fast and intuitive, it provides results that are correlated with the reference methods.
What you can analyze
With CDR FoodLab®, you can determine the shelf life of your finished products in a simple and fast way, by monitoring the oxidation state and the rancidity of the oils contained in the different products. All of this through regular and easy tests. You can analyze:
- Free Fatty Acids in less than 1 minute
- Peroxide Value in 3 minute
- p-Anisidine Value in 1 minute
Determining the shelf life of finished products in 4 steps
The CDR FoodLab® chemical analysis system for the determination of the shelf life of finished products can also be used to make a complete quality control of bakery products and speads from raw material to finished products. Further more you can test any type of vegetable and animal fats and oils. Moreover, it can be configured to perform analyses on eggs and egg products, milk and dairy products, tomato and tomato derivatives.
With CDR FoodLab®, thanks to a simple cold water extraction using a watery solution (CDR Extrafluid), it is possible to determine the shelf life of finished products in an easy and fast way, by monitoring the oxidation state and the rancidity of the oils contained in the products through regular tests of Free Fatty Acids, Peroxide Valueand and p-Anisidine.
No risks for the operator are entailed and the environmental impact is reduced to a minimum.
Thanks to the Multitasking Mode, it is possible to run the oxidation state test of bakery products, snacks and spreads in 15 minutes.
A true testing laboratory
A true testing laboratory to determine the shelf life of bakery products, baked goods, spreads and snacks that comes in a complete, intuitive and reliable equipment
CDR FoodLab® is a true analysis laboratory. We have developed it to perform easy and fast chemical analyses even on the production line without the support of personnel with specific lab tech experience.
CDR FoodLab® fine tunes traditional testing methods, making them faster and easier, while guaranteeing accuracy standards in line with the ISO/AOCS reference methods.
Compare the models of analyzer available
With CDR FoodLab®, in addition to carrying out analyzes on baked products, you can also determine the main chemical parameters for quality control of all vegetable or animal oils and fats and other foods such as egg products, milk and dairy products, tomato derivatives as well as animal feed and pet food
Our device comes from a family of fast and reliable testing systems that we have developed and manufactured to perform food and beverage quality controls during the production process.
The ‘help’ function makes your tests easier
The system is reliable, fast and intuitive. It is so simple to use that anyone can run a test in total autonomy as if they were skilled personnel. Just a few steps suffice to perform the analyses and, if there is ever a doubt, the HELP function will lead you through the process by displaying detailed instructions. Check out all the features
This study carried out by the researchers of CDR chemical laboratories demonstrates how it is possible to develop a system for the determination of the oxidative state and shelf life of bakery products, baked goods, snacks and spreads usable from food manDownload
How does the analysis take place? Take a look
With CDR FoodLab®, chemical tests on bakery products are performed in just a few steps and results are yielded right away:
- Select the parameter to measure from the menu: the system automatically selects the correct wavelength.
- Use the supplied pipette to add the correct volume of sample to the pre-vialed reagent, specifically developed by our laboratories. A colorimetric reaction is generated.
- Follow the displayed instructions.
Peroxide Value analysis on Bakery Products
The result of the test is automatically calculated, displayed and printed in just a few minutes in its unit of measure.
If you need the Help function will lead you through the analysis process “Step by Step”.
You don’t have to handle toxic or carcinogenic compounds; there is no need to wash either containers or traditional glassware.
You can perform the tests not only in laboratory, but also at production line, even if you don’t have any laboratory technical skills.
Save your time
CDR FoodLab® allows accelerating analytical procedures because you can perform 16 simultaneous tests.
Furthermore, the Multitasking function allows performing several analyses at the same time on the same sample or sixteen different assays for the same parameter on a batch of different samples. All of this in an simple and fast way.
CDR FoodLab ® is used to determine the lactose in bakery products to verify the actual quantity of lactose present in lactose-free products.
With CDR FoodLab ® the analysis of alcohol content can be performed both on a antibacterial solution and on a finished product, determining the starting alcohol concentration and the final product concentration respectively, in order to avoid exceeding the legal limit.
