Whether you are formulating a new product or reformulating an existing one, CLS can help reduce your testing time and meet your go-to-market goals.
Our research scientists evaluate the oxidative stability and microbial stability of your food products using a combination of analytical techniques and accelerated oxidation tests. We work with you to determine your desired project objectives and the best protocol to provide you with customized shelf-life solutions.
For oxidation testing, Kemin uses the following methods: stress measurement of induction point, accelerated temperature storage studies and ambient temperature storage studies. We have various methods of analysis for oxidation testing such as primary and secondary oxidative by-products, active component analyses and color evaluation. KFT also has our own in-house sensory lab where we will conduct sensory testing on final food products.
For microbial spoilage testing, Kemin uses the following methods: non-inoculated studies and challenge studies. We use aerobic plate counts, water activity, disk diffusion / microtiter plate and many other methods of analyses for our studies.
Our CLS team can help you maximize your ingredient efficiency of your products by helping to determine the most effective treatment for your food, identify the correct inclusion rate and help establish the most effective point of application for your product.
