Test Description

As nutritional legislation increases, the proficiency of laboratories to provide accurate results to food manufacturers for labelling is a key quality criterion, to help consumers make informed choices about the food they eat. Fapas offers the widest range of analyte/matrix proficiency test combinations for the food sector.

This proficiency test is based on commercially produced milk that might be bought by a consumer and covers the routine nutritional components listed above.

Deliberate food adulteration for economic gain is increasing, with high profile issues making national or international news. There is now a greater emphasis on authenticity testing with a number of international projects addressing the analytical problems. The Fapas authenticity and adulteration proficiency tests allow laboratories to assess their detection capability for undeclared high level substitutions. And provide feedback from which to improve your testing ability if needed, or maintain high quality testing across a range of testing environments.
