CDR FoodLab

CDR FoodLab booth at snackex 2017: international event for the savoury snacks and snack nut

People from 35 countries visited CDR booth at SNACKEX to see the innovative quality control methods for snack available with CDR FoodLab®, the analysis system already used by snack industries worldwide. The most used application is the quality control of the oil during the frying process and the control of the quality of savoury snacks (fried chips, corn chips, etc.) as well as nuts (peanuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, etc…).

Fried snacks: the knowledge of the oxidation state to improve the Shelf life

Snack foods are currently consumed by millions of people of diverse cultural backgrounds in many countries because they are tempting snacks if characterized by crispness, brilliant colour and flavours.

However, these products 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.

Comparison between different methods

CDR FoodLab® method for the determination of Lactose content in lactose-free dairy products

In this work a new improvement for lactose determination is assessed in terms of reproducibility, accuracy and recovery. New method and traditional enzymatic method are also taken into comparisonon adding determined aliquotes of lactose in reallactose-free matrices. The new method, that is in CDR FoodLab®, appears to be much quicker and with a friendly use for everyone if it is compared to the tradional enzymatic kit.

FFA and POV test validation by universities of Republic of Korea

The reliability and availability of CDR FoodLab® system for determining acid value (AV) and peroxide value (POV) were assessed
during the hydrolytic rancidification and lipid oxidation of edible oils.
The CDR FoodLab® system based on spectrophotometry was compared to the official methods (ISO 660 and 3960 protocols) based on manual titration employing the standard mixture for the simulated
oxidation models and edible oils during the thermally induced oxidation at 180°C.
Considering ISO protocols with a probability of human error in manual titration, the rapidness and simplicity of the reagent kit based on spectrophotometry make it a very good alternative to monitor the lipid
oxidation of edible oils and lipid-containing foods.

Comparison study between CDR FoodLab® for oils and fats analytics methods and reference methods made by Campden BRI

The international reference laboratory Campden Bri has trialled the CDR FoodLab® to establish whether it could meet the requirements for analysing a number of important food quality parameters. assessment of the ability of the CDR FoodLab® to analyse for Anisidine Value, Peroxide Value and Free Fatty Acid content showed that the instrument gave comparable results to the reference methods with very high correlation coefficients suggesting good accuracy of results.
