Snacks

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…).

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
