CEREALS AND PULSES TESTING

Assorted nuts and seeds in bowls, alongside cereals and pulses. A wholesome mix of nutritious ingredients.

CVR Labs is your Trusted Partner for cereals and pulses testing. We apply the most advanced technologies and equipment to ensure the quality and safety of cereals and pulses. Let’s introduce you to Cereals and pulses testing, outline the tests available in this area, and then discuss how we analyse the physical chemical microbiological data of these products.

What is Cereals and Pulses Testing?

Cereals and pulses Testing consists of a systematic inspection which ensures that cereal grains, such as rice or wheat grain have met standards regarding quality, safety measures and regulations. The basic goals of Cereals and Pulses Testing are as follows:

Quality Control:

Making certain that the items meet expectations for appearance, texture and taste.

Nutritional Analysis:

Calculating the nutrition (protein, fibre and moisture).

Safety verification:

This involves measuring and eliminating potential hazards to health like pollutants or infectious bacteria.

Regulatory Compliance:

Ensuring that the products meet local and international food safety standards.

What is the Cereals and Pulses Testing service?

Usually, they spray cereals with insecticide to prevent infestation. The insecticides used to treat these cereals and pulses can be harmful to their consumers they also check the maximum residue level. Cereals Testing Also include testing of peas, Dal, corn and cholam; also agricultural commodities. CVR Labs tests cereals and pulses for all kinds of physical, chemical or microbiological properties.
