Heavy Metals are natural part of the environmental and they easily find way in to our water, food and environment. Regardless of how they enter the food cycle, they disturb the normal functioning of the body metabolism and can accumulate in the body causing severe toxicity.
To protect the consumers regulatory bodies across the world have established regulations with stringent limits on the permitted levels of heavy metals in different food products.
This makes it important for food industry to ensure that their products are free from these toxic elements by regularly testing their ingredients and products for compliance with the regulatory requirements.
We routinely conduct testing for heavy metals in various food samples like honey, milk, cheese, namkeen, snacks, cooked foods, dietary supplements, alcoholic beverages, juices and drinks and many more
Our food testing labs are equipped with the latest equipment like Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICP MS), Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometer (ICP-OES) and Atomic Absorption Spectrometer (AAS) for testing heavy metals in food ingredients and products.
