  7. 1,3-DCP and 2,3-DCP Analysis

    Feras contamination scientists are able to offer a range of MCPD test variants upon request. Please contact us to learn more.

  8. Acrylamide
    Acrylamide is a chemical substance formed by a reaction between amino acids and sugars. It typically occurs when foods with high starch content such as potatoes, root vegetables and bread, are cooked at high temperatures (over 120°C) in a process of frying, roasting or baking.
  9. Metals Analysis
    Fera food testing experts perform extensive mineral and trace element testing of food samples, accredited to ISO17025, to provide insights into the quality and safety of your foodstuffs.
  10. Zearalenone (ZON)
