Food Safety and Quality Testing

(NABL Accredited Laboratory)

IIFPT has a world class hi-tech food testing laboratory accredited by National Accreditation Board For Testing And Calibration Laboratories Under ISO/IEC 17025:2017. We have experienced and quality scientific and technical man power in the food testing laboratory with world class analytical equipments and high quality man power, our food testing laboratory is one of its kind and unique in serving the food industries, research institutes and other stake holders in areas of food processing.

Food Safety and Quality Testing

Our Food Testing Laboratory is equipped to analyse the Physico-chemical characteristics of Food materials including raw materials and finished products. We have wide range of equipments to analyse Food composition, Textural properties, Viscosity, Elemental analysis and Toxin analysis in Food grains, Water analysis and phytochemical analysis in Fruits and Vegetables. Samples from different industries like Food Processing Industries, Edible Oil industries, Exporters & Importers and Pharma and Biotech industries and sent to us for analysis. The samples are analysed with the standard protocols like AOAC, AACC and BIS standards.

Food Safety and Quality Testing

The food testing industry worksclosely with manufacturers to ensure that all products are scientificallytested and proved to be safe for human consumption at a variety of stages, fromraw material to production line, to finished product. Food testing can covermany aspects of the food manufacturing process. Most commonly, a common set ofscientific techniques are used to analyse, assess and record the safety andviability of a product in terms of microbiological stability and chemical composition.



Services

Food Testing Laboratory supports regulatory analysis of food and agri products. We Assists the food industry commissions for nutritional labeling, food safety evaluations, and trace analysis and shelf life studies. We also offering consultancy for setting up of Quality Testing Laboratory in Food processing and allied industries. We also are providing hands on training in various hi-tech equipment.

Products Tested

The multivariate products sent to ourlaboratory for analysis include: processed food products, fruits &vegetables, beverages, spices, pulses & cereal foods, confectionery, meat& meat products, milk & milk products, water, medicinal plants, seaweedsand pharmaceutical drugs.
