Analysis of Organic Contaminants

Sidebar Image

Organic contaminants are undesirable, harmful substances, which are found at trace level in foodstuffs. They are not present in food due to a deliberate action, but find their way into it through contact with air, water or soil, enter it during the manufacturing process or are generated during manufacturing as process contaminants (e.g. acrylamide or 3-monochloropropane-1,2-diol (3-MCPD)).

The Centre of Competence for the Analysis of Organic Contaminants within the global Eurofins Group, offers the examination of a large number of organic contaminants of anthropogenic origin as well as process contaminants, in a great variety of food and feed.
