Oils and Fats

Often, the first evidence of a spoiled product is rancidity. It happens when the lipids are exposed to air, light or moisture or microbial actions. Food items must be able to maintain their product integrity to meet customer expectations for safety and satisfaction. Rancidity test identifies the level of lipid oxidation in a provided sample. This is why testing of lipids is part of establishing a product’s shelf life.
