Food, Feed & Grains
Food product testing is considered as the most important step despite being the last process of the food manufacturing chain. Food product testing is vitally necessary, to assure that the food is free of physical, chemical, and biological hazards and also determines the safety of the food for use. Examples of potentially hazardous food contaminants include metals, pathogens, cleaning agents, additives, preservatives, pesticides, adulterants, and more. In UAE, the regulation set up by GSO & other international standards are most vital and should be followed. Feeding the world’s growing population requires great quantities of food and accurately measuring the quality of that food is vital to sustained personal and economic health. Food quality testing is necessary to monitor and control quality parameters throughout the fresh produce supply chain to meet consumer demands and extend shelf life.
