Study on the Shelf-Life of Ricotta Cheese Conducted Using FoodLab

The chemical analysis of the milk and dairy products for quality control for every stage of the production chain with CDR FoodLab

CDR FoodLab Method for dairy products analysis: study and correlation with reference methods resultsThe results of a study entitled “Comparison between analytical methods for the determination of the amount of ammonia, Peroxide Value (PV), chlorides and lactic acid aimed at calculating the shelf-life of ricotta cheese” were presented at the 2003 CISET conference. Said study was performed by L’Istituto Sperimentale Lattiero Caseario (Dairy Products Experimental Institute) of Lodi, directed by Prof. Toppino, and was conducted on several samples of ricotta cheese stored at different temperatures. The study enabled to compare the official analytical methods with those of Foodlab.

FoodLab® is the preceding version of CDR FoodLab® , the new and implemented analyzer of the CDR FoodLab® range, for which is valid the CDR FoodLab® method of analysis.

Conclusions of the study: “The method offered by CDR FoodLab by CDR proved to be excellent in some cases and very positive and promising in others, because it enabled to determine the marker analytes and the degree of degradation of ricotta cheese and, generally speaking, of dairy derivative products. This method basically enables to monitor products more frequently and more affordably during storage and distribution“.

With the CDR system, you can perform your tests in total autonomy

Neither skilled staff nor a dedicated external laboratory is needed to use our systems. CDR FoodLab® optimizes traditional testing methods, making them faster and easier, while guaranteeing accuracy standards in line with the reference methods.

Analytical kit

CDR FoodLab® Analysis Systems use disposable pre-vialed reagents specifically developed by the research laboratories of CDR. The use of pre-vialed reagents and the analytical procedures allow:

  • a sample preparation that is quick and easy, when needed at all;
  • making analytical procedures extremely fast and easy;
  • removing all needs for complex calibration procedures.

Reagents come in aluminum packages containing 10 test tubes each to perform 10 tests (or packages for 100 tests containing 10 single packages of 10 test tubes each).

Just a few steps and results are yielded right away

Just a few steps will suffice to carry out your analysis in a rapid way in total autonomy. The system is composed of both the analyzer based on photometric technology and a kit of low toxicity, pre-vialed reagents, developed by CDR.

CDR FoodLab® is cost-effective because it does not require the use of expensive equipment and does not entail maintenance, assistance or calibration costs.
