Solution to predict the shelf life of Snacks was last modified: July 7th, 2017 by CDR s.r.l.

With CDR FoodLab®, you can forecast the shelf life of your snacks 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:

 

CDR FoodLab configurable for analysis of foods: oils and fats, eggs and egg products, milk and dairy products, tomato and derivativesThe CDR FoodLab® chemical analysis system for the determination of the shelf life of snacks 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.

Save your Time

Test the shelf life of your snacks in few simple 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 nuts snacks and fried snacks by monitoring the oxidation state and the rancidity of the oils contained in the products through regular tests of Free Fatty Acids, Peroxide Value and p-Anisidine.value.

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.

Take a look!

In the same way you can perform the tests on fried potato chips, extruded and pellet snacks, tortilla chips and the various types of snack nuts. So check the quality of the snacks or predict their shelf life is simple and fast.

 

A true testing laboratory to determine the shelf life of snacks that comes in a complete, intuitive and reliable equipment

Complete, intuitive and reliable equipment to determine the shelf life of bakery products, spreads and snacksCDR 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® simplifies and speeds up traditional testing methods, making them faster and easier, while guaranteeing accuracy standards in line with the ISO/AOCS reference methods.

Compact and handy, it is composed of:

  • an analyzer based on photometric technology equipped with state-of-the-art LED emitters, available in 2 versions
  • a kit of pre-vialed and ready-to-use low toxicity reagents, specifically developed by our research laboratory to fine tune analytical methods and avoid any contact with toxic or carcinogenic substances
  • pipettes that allow for the collection of the correct volume of sample.

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.

How to know the oxidation state to forecast the Shelf life of the fried snacks

Fried snacks: the knowledge of the oxidation state to improve the Shelf lifeSnacks food can undergo degradation processes, first of all, the lipid oxidation which causes rancidity and off- flavours. There are several methods to test the shelf life of snacks and bakery foods, but CDR FoodLab® is the only one, not only to be a green method, but also, it is able to give an actual measurement of oxidative stability of finished products, in a simple and fast way.
