Analysis of Cereals

Cereals are mainly produced from grains. The term "breakfast cereals" has been established for products that are usually consumed for breakfast. Cereals are produced by diverse production processes. Because of that there are numerous possibilities to combine common grains with other ingredients (e.g. cornflakes products, multigrain products, ground and roasted products, extruder products, puffed products, shredded products).

Cornflakes are industrially processed breakfast cereals. They are made from maize, which has been cooked, ground and dried, together with other ingredients. Cornflakes are normally eaten for breakfast with milk, yogurt or fruit juice. They may also be a part of muesli.

Muesli usualy contains following ingredients:

  1. One or more types of cereal
  2. Fruit (e.g. dried fruits)
  3. Oilseeds (e.g. nuts, sunflower or pumkin seeds)

Eurofins covers the whole analytical spectrum of cereals and their raw materials with its varied range of analysis.
