Expertise in measuring oxidation in final products

Many foods undergo oxidation, which causes changes in odour, taste and appearance, limiting shelf life. Antioxidants can help protect against oxidation, but knowing which antioxidant is most effective is not always straightforward. Many foods are complex matrices where multiple ingredients can affect the reaction pathways that take place during oxidation and the stability of the final product. Sometimes the only way to know if an antioxidant can help is to test it first.

Accelerated oxidation tests using the Oxipres or Rancimat give answers fast and several dosages can be tested simultaneously in our specialist lab. We can compare between different types of antioxidants and offer expert advice on extending the shelf life of your product.
