EDIBLE OIL TESTING
The process of edible oil testing is complex to ensure the safety, quality, and nutritional value of these crucial food components. Such evaluations do not only guarantee that the product is of the best quality but also keep it safe from spoilage, protect against rancidity and ensure satisfaction on both gastronomic as well as health fronts for consumers.
The Primary aims of edible oil testing are as follows:
Ensure that the oils have these appearance, flavor and scent characteristics.
That’s the whole process of recognizing and eliminating possible health threats: pollutants, and harmful bacteria.
How to determine nutritional value, such as fatty acid composition and moisture content.
To ensure that oils meet both local and international food safety standards.
Why do we require Edible Oil Testing?
These quality tests are needed to establish a complete profile of the contents in edible oil. To import or export edible oils, the company needs to submit a comprehensive oil analysis report to regulatory bodies. Testing of oil and vegetable oil are included in the Edible Oil tests.
