With an increasing global population, the food industry is challenged to provide safe and nutritious groceries for all of us. Because edibles are such an important part in our lives, strict legal regulations and recommendations require safe standards are met.
Elemental Analysis for Safe Food
To ensure compliance with these directives, continuous product quality monitoring in all steps of food production is necessary. This includes quality checks:
- At customs
- When receiving feedstock
- During processing
- Before packaging
- And spot tests of the final product.
For those and other food & feed industry-related applications, X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is the ideal analytical technique to determine quickly, easily, and reliably elemental data of high quality. The S2 PUMA is a benchtop energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometer which is a high-performance, easy-to-operate instrument for your food and feed related analysis.
