This Fapas proficiency test can help evaluate your testing ability for a range of pesticide residues within peanut butter. From this, your testing arrangement can be critiqued to highlight areas of improvement and maintain the high quality testing required.

To ensure a high-quality crop, suppliers regularly use pesticides to reduce disease and pests within their crop. Through good farming practices, the levels of pesticides passed to the consumer is low and manageable below safe levels. Suppliers may not always be utilising good farming practice, so it is important to ensure high-quality testing to identify any high levels of various pesticides being passed to consumers.

Nuts are a valuable source of proteins, monounsaturated fats, fibre and vitamins due to their unique nutrient profiles. Several health benefits are related to the consumption of nuts and seed, but these nutritional properties provide good conditions for the survival of microorganisms during processing.

Fapas proficiency tests utilise real food matrices to provide direct comparisons to your routine testing ability, allowing you to highlight areas of improvement. This is all in an effort to safeguard your high quality testing activities across a range of testing environments and provide your customers with the credible results they require to meet strict regulations.
