Test Description

The presence of metals in food is of particular concern due to their toxicity. These naturally occurring chemicals can occur as residues in food by a range of mechanisms such as their natural presence in the environment or contamination during food processing and storage. Their accumulation in the body can lead to harmful effects over time and their presence in foodstuffs is strictly regulated.

Almonds are seen as a healthy source of protein and so are consumed directly in large quantities on a global basis, but are also commonly used as an ingredient in cakes and other sweet foods due to their flavour properties. Monitoring of traded product is therefore important to prevent contaminated goods entering the food chain.

 

Quality control materials are the perfect way to track your progress against a control. They are used to validate whether a testing instrument or process is operating within pre-defined specifications. This validation process makes sure your test results are as close to the true value as possible, and therefore your testing process is a credible as it can be.
