Belfast, Northern Ireland based Bia Analytical Ltd has expanded its laboratory-based food authenticity testing services with two additional spices, black pepper and turmeric. The company now offers rapid authenticity testing for four herbs and spices – oregano, sage, black pepper and turmeric. In addition, the company will also start providing bespoke model development services for customers with specific authenticity testing needs.
The majority of scientific testing for food safety and food authenticity purposes in feeds and foods requires samples to be collected from various points in the supply chain and dispatched to laboratories. This is how it has been done for a long time, but there is a growing need and demand from industry to move to more on-site testing.
