Pollutants in food

Chemical analyses of food

Comestibles can be contaminated with harmful substances due to origin, production and processing, storage or transport. In many cases, food contains residues of such pollutants (e.g. several heavy metals, various organic pollutants)

We provide the following services to manufacturers, importers and distributors
  • Testing for heavy metals (e.g. lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, chromium, nickel)
  • Testing for additional pollutants in selected comestibles on request
