With CDR FoodLab®, quality control on bakery products, baked goods, snacks, and spreads can be carried out completely, quickly, and easily starting from the raw materials used (oils and fats, milk, eggs) and ending with the finished product. Toxic solvents are not necessary for the preparation of the sample and the tests are completed in 10 minutes.
The CDR laboratories have studied very simple and rapid sample preparation systems that do not involve the use of toxic solvents and are used to evaluate the oxidative stability of the finished product, thus obtaining valuable information on rancidity and shelf-life. Furthermore, it is possible to determine the presence of the appropriate quantity of lactose in the case of lactose-free products or of alcohol used as a preservative and antibacterial agent.
CDR FoodLab ® is used to determine the lactose in bakery products to verify the actual quantity of lactose present in lactose-free products.
The sample preparation is very simple: distilled water in appropriate proportions is added to the ground product to allow its solubilization.
A clear solution is obtained through a centrifugal action which can thus be easily analysed.
In 10 minutes, with this simple method, reliable and precise results are obtained in accordance with the reference method (HPLC), which requires training, specific knowledge, and a great deal of time available.
With CDR FoodLab ® the analysis of alcohol content can be performed both on an antibacterial solution and on a finished product, determining the starting alcohol concentration and the final product concentration respectively, in order to avoid exceeding the legal limit.
Also in the latter case, the treatment of the sample takes place simply by adding to the crushed product a determined quantity of distilled water which solubilizes the alcohol bringing it into solution.
With simple centrifugation a clear solution is obtained which is then easily analysed. The analysis consists of a simple photometric reading.
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:
