Quality of Food Products is a critical factor which affects every individual in this fast changing world. The rise in the economic standard of people around the world and the increase in the production of Processed Food have led to the global appreciation of the concept of Quality Food Testing. The definition and ways of characterizing Food Quality have undergone a vast change in the last few decades. The concerns about the Quality of Food Testing not only encompass the issues of basic attributes, like Taste, Aroma, Feel, Appearance, Nutritional Values, but also the very important requirement of Human Safety. A number of regulations are being enforced from time to time in relation to Food Quality Parameters.

Food reaches Consumers via various types of supply chains that may connect different types of organizations like Manufacturers, Transport and Storage, Distributors, Retailers, Caterers, etc. Food Safety hazards can occur in the Food Chain at any stage, hence adequate Quality Control is required to be exercised at every step throughout the supply chain. The establishment of adequate Quality Control can be effectively brought about through Standardized Laboratory Testing. The accurate, reliable, & reproducible Test Results provided by Third Party Testing Laboratories play a vital role in evaluation of the Quality of Food Products. The services of such laboratories are being used by Food Industry, Exporters & Importers of Food Products, Academic and Research Institutions, Nodal Agencies, Regulatory Authorities, & Consumers.

Testing of Food Products can be broadly divided into three categories: Physical, Chemical & Microbiological.

Major Routine Tests are:


•    Physical, Visual examination and Grading
•    Organoleptic (Sensory) tests
•    Proximate & Nutritional analysis
•    Presence of Adulterants
•    Chemical parameters like pH, moisture, Ash, Acidity, Proteins, Carbohydrates, Fat content, Energy Value, Filth content
•    Testing of Micronutrients like Minerals & Vitamins
•    Presence & Quantification of Adulterants as well as Contaminants
•    Residue Analysis – Pesticide Residues, Mycotoxin Residues, Antibiotics & Drugs Residues, etc.
•    Microbiological testing of Total Bacterial Count, Coliform, Yeast & Mould, E-coli, Salmonella, Staphylococcus Aureus etc.
