Organic contaminants testing will ensure the safety of your products
Organic contaminants are undesirable, harmful substances, which are found at trace level in foodstuffs. They are not present in food due to a deliberate action, but find their way into it through contact with air, water or soil, enter it during the manufacturing process or are generated during manufacturing as process contaminants (e.g. acrylamide or 3-monochloropropane-1,2-diol (3-MCPD)).
Food producers need to ensure that their products are toxicologically safe and in compliance with all legal requirements through the use of analytical testing.
