Pulses and lentils are the ripe edible seeds of a wide range of pod-bearing, leguminous plants. Versatile and highly nutritious, they are used in soups, stews, curries, salads and both sweet and savoury dishes all around the world. Through effective proficiency testing measures effective areas of improvement can be found to mitigate any potentially low-quality test results which may be offered to our customers and regulators.
Pesticide Residues are used extensively across a range of crops, including lentils. These are used with the goal of maintaining high-quality produce by controlling disease and pest impacts on crops. Through good farming practises levels of pesticide residues are usually low and under safe levels. Yet as farmers come under increasing pressure to satisfy growing demand for products such as pulses, poor farming practices may increase levels of pesticide residues exposed to consumers. This must be controlled using effective quality control measures.
Fapas proficiency testing measures are invaluable for ensuring only high-quality test results are offered to your customers and regulators alike. This can be achieved through the use of challenging test materials, which are enabled due to the real food matrices Fapas utilise. These challenging test materials can ensure effective areas of improvement are highlighted, with areas of importance available to ensure test results are detailed and accurate enough to satisfy your customers.
