Focus on Food Testing Mini-Series: Amino Acid Analysis
With the prevalence of newly added protein supplement products to market, from protein milk to protein energy bars, amino acid testing is becoming an essential technique in the testing of both new products and batch testing. Specialist dietary products are also on the rise giving the need for accurate protein content analysis to ensure the product meets specification. As a result, amino acid analysis has one of the widest uses in food label testing due to a newly required focus on amino acids from the food and drink industries.
Why use AltaBioscience for your amino acid testing requirements?
There are many methods for analysing amino acids but at AltaBioscience, we use ion exchange chromatography with post column derivatisation which is seen as the gold standard of the available techniques. It also enables us to accurately quantify a diverse range of product types, from crackers to beer and grain samples. Our UKAS accreditation to ISO 17025:2008 ensures the quality of our testing and is often a requirement for our customers. We are the ideal partner for your food testing requirements whether it be for food labelling requirements or general quality testing and are backed up with more than 40 years’ experience in amino acid analysis.
