Peroxide Value test in Fats and Oils

CDR FoodLab, the fats and oils chemical analysis system for quality and process controlseither in a laboratory or on the production line

With the analysis systems in CDR FoodLab® range, in just 4 minutes, without titration, using micro quantity of sample you can carry out the Peroxide Value test of edible Oils and fats like Olive oil, Nuts oil, Walnut oil, Peanut oil, Sunflower oil, castor oil, Palm oil and the other vegetable oils, butter, margarine, Fish oil, coocking oil, animal fats and so on. Absolutely no preparation for oil sample and a really easy one for fat sample. The method in compliant to AOCS Official Method Cd 8-53.

Features

  • Rapids results: 4 minute ISO/AOCS compliant method.
  • Simple method: photometric method, low toxicity reagents pre-filled in disposable cuvettes.
  • test using micro-samples:suitable even to test fat substances that have a difficult extraction process.
  • Cost effective solution: rapid return on investment

Take a look! Testing Peroxide Value is fast and simple

Method

Test type: End Point
Testing time: 4 minutes – 70 Tests/Hour
It is possible to carry out several test sessions with a maximum of 16 samples.
The system is supplied pre-calibrated and ready for use.

Principle of the test

R-O-O-R peroxide value oxidize Fe2+ ions. The Fe3+ ions resulting from oxidation are grouped and form a red complex. Its colorimetric intensity, measured at 505 nm, is directly proportional to the concentration of peroxide value in the sample. Results are expressed as meqO2/Kg.

The amount of peroxide value of fats indicate the degree of primary oxidation and therefore its likeliness of becoming rancid. A lower number of peroxide value indicates a good quality of oil and a good preservation status.

Unsaturated free fatty acids react with oxygen and form peroxide value, which determine a series of chain reactions that generate the production of smelling volatile substances. Those reactions are accelerated by high temperature and by light and oxygen exposure.

CDR innovative method simplifies and speeds up the standard procedure, because it enables the analysis to be carried out using micro-quantities of samples and to be applied to fats that are difficult to extract.

Reagent test Kits

The reagents are packaged in foil pouches containing 10 tubes useful to perform 10 analyses.

This is the minimum package that allows the use of CDR systems even to those who need to make a few analyses, thus not wasting reagents.

There are also boxes of 100 tests, however, packaged in 10 bags of 10 tubes containing the reagent.

For analysis of olive oil

Code. 300159A : 20 tests

Code. 300150A: 100 tests (5 packages of  20 tests)

 

For analysis of other oils

Code. 300159 : 20 tests 

Code. 300150: 100 tests (5 packages of  20 tests)

For samples, with high acidity, where a dilution is requested, you must use an appropriate reagent kits.

Code. 300129: 100 tests.

The reagents have a shelf-life of 12 months.

 

Sample Handling

Oil as is (olive oil, extracted from seeds, nuts, etc.).
Solid fats: melted using bain-marie method before starting the test (animal fats, palm oil, etc.).
Extractable fats: extract the fatty part following the instructions provided in the test method (butter, cream, margarine, semi-finished products, etc.).
