How to predict the shelf life of snack nuts and fried snack
Are you a producer of fried potato chips, extruded and pellet snacks, tortilla chips and the various types of snack nuts? Are you looking for an instrument to predict the shelf life of your products? We have the analysis system that is most appropriate for your business.
It is CDR FoodLab®, the analysis system that test the oxidation state of varoius type of snack nuts and fried snack in simple way and in few minutes in order to check the quality of finished product or predict their shelf life.
With CDR FoodLab®, the prediction of the shelf life of snacks 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.
With CDR FoodLab®, you can predict 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:
The 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
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®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 predict the Shelf life of the fried snacks
Snacks 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. Read Comparison between different methods
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.
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 FoodLab® is cost-effective because it does not require the use of expensive equipment and does not
entail maintenance, assistance or calibration costs. Find out how it works
