How to determine the oxidation state and the shelf life of finished products, like bakery products, snacks and spreads
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:
- Acidity in 1 minute
- Peroxides in 4 minute
- p-Anisidine Value in 2 minutes
The CDR FoodLab® chemical analysis system for the determination of the shelf life of finished products can also be used to 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.
Determining the shelf life of finished products in 4 steps
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 Acidity, Peroxide Valueand 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 5 minutes.
