CDR FoodLab® for Nuts

CDR FoodLab® is the analysis system that allows performing fast quality controls on nuts and seeds in order to determine their oxidation status, abandoning the use of toxic solvents like Soxhlet involved in traditional testing methods.


CDR FoodLab® easily performs chemical analyses on nuts and seeds to determine their oxidation status and efficaciously monitor the natural degradation and rancidity process of batches of products.

With no use of toxic solvents, the system can determine:

  • Free Fatty Acids in 1 minute
  • Peroxide Value in 4 minutes
  • p-Anisidine Value in 6 minutes

CDR FoodLab® can analyze the micro-quantities of samples by extracting the oil with a simple mechanical treatment. No maintenance and calibration are required. The system can be used not only in a laboratory but also in real-time at the processing plant, even by staff with no previous specific lab tech experience.

How to determine the oxidation status of nuts?

Performing chemical analyses to monitor the oxidation status of oils and fats contained in hard-shelled dried fruit, seeds, etc. is simple and fast because with the CDR system you extract the oil to analyze with a simple mechanical treatment, abandoning the use of toxic solvents, extraction hoods, All reagents are supplied in pre-filled cuvettes and ready to use, and operators do not have to handle toxic or carcinogenic compounds; there is no need to wash either containers or traditional glassware.

Thanks to the Multitasking Mode, on the oil, extracted you can determine in 5 minutes Free Fatty Acids, Peroxide Vale and p-Anisidine Value, complex analytical instruments, and complicated methods.

How is CDR FoodLab® System composed?


CDR FoodLab® Analysis System uses an analyzer based on photometric technology, available in two versions, and a dedicated kit of pipettes.

The ease and reliability of the system are based on exclusive technical features:

  • reading cells are equipped with state-of-the-art LED emitters;
  • reading and incubation cells are thermostated at 37 ° C;
  • the analyzer is supplied pre-calibrated, no further calibration or maintenance is required;
  • instruments can be equipped with a printer or PC connection.

Reagent Kits

CDR FoodLab® Analysis Systems use low toxicity disposable pre-vialed reagents, specifically developed by the research laboratories of CDR.

The use of pre-vialed reagents and dedicated analytical procedures allows:

  • a sample preparation that is quick and easy, when needed at all;
  • making analytical procedures extremely fast and easy;
  • removing all needs for complex calibration procedures;
  • removing all needs to handle toxic or carcinogenic agents;
  • making the amount of chemical waste generated only a fraction of the waste generated by standard methods.
  • Reagents come in packages containing 10 test tubes each, to perform 10 tests (or packages for 100 tests containing 10 single packages of 10 test tubes each).
