Food Additives Testing

Food additives are non-nutritious substances which are added to food to enhance its colour, appearance or flavour, aid in preservation, or serve similar functions. Increasing use of food additives is a concern as they pose a safety risk on the health of consumers. The regulators of most countries, including India, have laid down specifications for thousands of food additives for assessing its purity, quality and quantity added

VIMTA offers comprehensive services to estimate the quality of food additive and its quantification in accordance with appropriate food additive standards, while helping in identification of any undeclared or inaccurately declared substance. This helps in identifying any possible health hazard.
