Are you a nut producer or are you active in the field of nut packaging?

Are you a nut producer or are you active in the field of nut packaging? Are you a producer of nutbased spreads? Leave aside traditional extraction methods that foresee the use of toxic solvents!

We have designed the system to determine the oxidation state of hard shelled dried fruit that is most appropriate for your business: it’s CDR FoodLab®.

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 without having to use toxic solvents.

Fast and intuitive, it runs chemical tests whose results are correlated with the reference methods.

What you can analyze

With CDR FoodLab® you can obtain in a simple and rapid way a complete control on the oxidation state of hard shelled dried fruit, seeds and other similar solid samples.

Tests available for nuts and seeds

Chemical analyzes to determine in 3 steps rancidity of dried fruit easily and quickly without toxic solvents

With the CDR system, you extract the oil to analyze with a simple mechanical treatment.

Thanks to the Multitasking Mode, on the oil extracted you can performe in 10 minutes Free Fatty Acids test, Peroxide Value test and p-Anisidine Value test, abandoning the use of toxic solvents, extraction hoods, complex analytical instruments and complicated methods.

Several comparative studies have given evidence that the accuracy of the results of oxidation state tests is in line with the accuracy of the results yielded by the reference methods, while CDR FoodLab® is much easier to use and provides the requested results in reduced testing time.

Save your time in testing nuts oxidation state

CDR FoodLab® can analyze micro-quantities of samples

  • No calibration procedure or maintenance operation is required.
  • The apparatus does not necessarily need to be used in a laboratory, but can also be used on the production line
  • Can be used by personnel without specific lab tech experience
  • Results are obtained in just a few minutes.

Used together with the dedicated extraction system developed by CDR, the CDR FoodLab® analysis system is particularly suites for all companies that are active in the field of nut production, processing and packaging.

In fact, the leading companies in this market sector have also chosen CDR FoodLab® because it allows to rapidly assess the quality of nuts abandoning traditional testing methods that foresee the use of toxic solvents (Soxhlet).

A true testing laboratory 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 procedures, making them faster and easier, while guaranteeing accuracy standards in line with the ISO/AOCS reference methods.

Take a look at the analyzers model availabe

With CDR FoodLab®, in addition to carrying out analyzes on nuts, you can also determine the main chemical parameters for quality control of other foods such as all vegetable or animal oils and fats, 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!
