Analysis of Nuts and Dried Fruits

Sidebar Image

Dried fruits and nuts are produced and processed in many different countries. Recently more and more exotic fruit are making their way into German and European markets. As typical agricultural products, dried fruits and nuts contain a variety of contaminants and harmful substances. Production, processing, transport and storage may result in contamination by pesticide residues, heavy metals, mycotoxins, or pest infestation. At the same time quality assessment, sensory analysis and the product quality class separation demand extensive experience and merchandise knowledge. European and German limit regulations, e.g. for pesticides, mycotoxins and SO2 require regular controls. Import controls on some contaminants and goods from non-EU countries are mandatory.
