Food and drink analysis
AltaBioscience provides food and drink analysis supporting the nutraceutical, farming and food manufacturing industries. Our amino acid analysis service, which is accredited to ISO 17025:2017, provides a quantitative analysis of protein content in all types of food and drink products.
Amino acid content
Our method of post-column detection provides separation of the amino acids before detection enabling us to accurately determine amino acid content in a wide variety of sample types. The benefits of this “gold standard” method are quantification of amino acids rather than protein content evaluated using nitrogen content as used by other methods which may inaccurately report high nitrogen from sources other than amino acids. Our method of post-column detection also enables us to analyse products that contain carbohydrates, fats etc that are not pure protein-based products as required by pre-column detection methods.
Food and feed testing
More information on sample requirements including a sample submission form can be found on our sample information page.
I found the team at Alta very easy to talk to, knowledgeable and they were extremely flexible. They worked hard to get results back to us in tight timelines at very short notice.
