CDR FoodLab® for Fats and Oils

How are tests on fats and oils performed?

Performing chemical analyses on fats and oils is simple and fast, because sample preparation, if any, is minimal. All reagents are supplied pre-vialed and ready to use, and operators do not have to handle toxic or carcinogenic compounds; there is no need to wash either containers or traditional glassware.

What can I analyze?

CDR FoodLab® system is the ideal solution to run analyses on fats and oils for quality control and process control at production lines in real time. This is why it is used worldwide by many food industries that either produce fats or oils, or process them as ingredients.

Some examples:

  • It becomes possible to quickly determine the shelf life of bakery products, snacks and creams with the utmost ease, by monitoring the oxidation status and the rancidity of the oils contained in the different products.
  • If used in deep-fried foods production lines, the CDR FoodLab® system for fats and oils enables to quickly check the quality of frying oils and to determine the shelf life of snacks and other fried foods with ease, speed and accuracy
  • If used in combination with the CDR extraction system, which operates without toxic solvents, the CDR FoodLab® system for fats and oils enables to assess the quality of either the raw ingredients or of the finished products of industries producing, processing or packing nuts and hard shelled dired fruit.
  • If you use palm oil as a cooking oil and shortening with CDR FoodLab® , or the specific analysis system CDR PalmOilTester, you can make process control real time at production line quickly even if yuo are without previous specific lab tech experience
  • Thanks to the small size of the sample it requires, these systems are highly appreciated by producers of valuable oils, essential oils and cosmetics
  • Tests on natural vegetable oils for various purposes: cosmetics, functional foods, nutritional supplements, pharmaceutical purposes (almond oil, canola oil, soy oil and so on)
  • Tests on marine oils such as fish oil and algae oil for nutraceutical or other purposes.
  • Tests of vegetable oils, animal fats and fuel oils (biofuels or biodiesel).
  • Accurate process control of refined oils thanks to special curves that work correctly even with very low ranges of acidity and peroxide value.
  • With a very simple sample pre-treatment developed in our chemical laboratories, CDR FoodLab® for Fats and Oils allows analyzing also flours, animal feed, butter and margarine
