.: Foods

We perform analyses for pesticides monitoring purposes and other residues in food, important part of various segments of quality control: in manufacturing, storaging, processing and further characterization of fresh food.

Quality control of security levels in foods has been the subject of constant evolution in order to produce and offer the consumer products of animal and plant origin absolutely according to specific standards of health security.

So, our limits meet the main laws: European, Japanese, Brazilian and other global laws; our analytical methods allow us to meet all food matrices, with reference to APRP (Analysis of Pesticide Residues Program) – ANVISA, CODEX and SANCO policies. Check out our Scope at INMETRO 17025. "link scope INMETRO 17025"

 

The following are the types of arrays under analyses:

Plant food:

  • Cereal grains and their products, flour and bran, crops with high protein and starch contents;
  • Fruits and vegetables in natura, crops with high water and acids contents;
  • Whole and ground spices;
  • Fresh vegetables with high oil/fat contents.

 

Processed foods:

  • Vegetable oils and fats;
  • Sugar;
  • Beverages;
  • Fruit pulp;
  • Fruit juices;
  • Fruit nectars.

 

Food of animal origin:

  • Meat;
  • Dairy;
  • Fats;
