With the increasingly demanding requirements for food safety and quality, food testing becomes an integral part of the food industry. Lifeasible, as a leading biotechnology company with state-of-the-art food and feed analysis technologies, provides a comprehensive suite of food testing services for consumers, manufacturers, and regulators. Our experts strive to provide you with tailored solutions for food safety control and quality improvement. Our goal is to help our customers produce high quality food and feed products that meet local, national and international regulations. We will work closely with you to make customized solutions to satisfy the specific requirements for food safety, quality, and the environment.
Our expertise spans a wide of range aspects including physics, chemistry, microbiology, genetics, food science, and so on. We provide a variety of chemical and nutritional evaluation services, including nutritional analysis, heavy metal and minerals analysis, food additives, residues, contaminants testing, and more. We also provide microbiology testing to detect pathogens and mycotoxins, underpinned by food packaging and shelf life testing services. Our featured authenticity testing service will help you identify the origin of food and to prevent fraud. What’s more, allergens and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) tests are available for our customers worldwide. Additionally, if you would like to understand how consumers react to your food products, our sensory analysis services can help you with your requirements.
Microbiology testing helps to determine if a food product is free from harmful micro-organisms and safe to consume. With years of experience in the study of microbiology, we provide high quality services for the detection of pathogenic microbes (such as Salmonellae, Staphylococcus aureus) and spoilage indicators (such as yeasts, fungi or molds). Both classical and advanced methodologies are available for sensitive and rapid microbiological testing. We provide tailored solutions and reliable results to comply with all relevant food safety regulations.
GMOs can be achieved via plant genetic engineering such as the CRISPR/CAS9 technique. Due to the optimized traits (e.g., higher yield, stronger stress resistance, and higher nutrition value), GMOs generally are preferred by plant breeders. However, the unknown risks for transgenic food is a major concern for consumers. Therefore, GMOs testing is necessary to ensure that companies meet strict regulations in a timely and efficient manner while keeping their customers safe and healthy. GMOs can be detected via different approaches, including protein testing and qualitative and quantitative DNA testing. We can provide high-quality GMOs testing services that strictly follows the ISO/IEC 17025 general requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories.
Residues and contaminants testing are essential for the health and safety of consumers; and manufacturers around the world have to follow strictly the regulations regarding prohibited and restricted chemicals. At Lifeasible, our experts offer a full array of scientific solutions for the identification of harmful chemical residues and contaminants in your food products.
Lifeasible provides fast and accurate chemical and nutritional analysis services, which help manufacturers ensure that their products contain the right amount of amino acids, fatty acids, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins, anti-nutrients, enzymes, and other critical ingredients. Our personalized services can not only help manufacturers meet nutritional labeling requirements, but also can provide consumers with valuable information on health claims.
Food additives can enhance food flavor, change food texture or extend shelf life. As food additives are important parts of the food products, it is necessary to detect whether the level of food additives comply with the appropriate food additive regulations. Furthermore, identifying illegal or undeclared substances is necessary to ensure consumers’ health and safety. Experts at Lifeasible provide testing services for a variety of food additives, including antiputrefactiva, colorants, sweeteners, bleaching agents, antioxidants, and so on. Food additives testing can help manufacturers reduce the risk of food poisoning, product recalls, as well as other issues that could damage their reputation or profits.
Food-related allergic reactions have been consistently increasing over the recent years. Some of these reactions can be life-threatening. Therefore, food manufacturers must provide detailed information about the contents, especially potential allergens and cross-contamination risks. At Lifeasible, we offer allergens testing based on ELISA methods, PCR methods, as well as LC-MS/MS methods.
The unknown side-effects of adulterants in foods may pose a health risk. Effective and accurate screening for any possible illegal practices of adulteration is vital for public health. Our specialists provide food adulterant testing services with high reliability, to ensure the health and safety of consumers, and to protect the brand confidence of food product manufacturers.
Understanding the physical and chemical properties of food is essential for food preservation and food quality assessment. We provide multiple testing services for physical and chemical characterizations of food product properties, such as moisture, acid value, Brix value, peroxide value, specific optical rotation, total volatile basic nitrogen, trimethylamine nitrogen, malondialdehyde, fatty acid, pH, caffeine content, and so on.
Sensory evaluation of food products interpret the responses of humans based on color, smell, texture, taste, and hearing. Reliable, accurate analyses can help food producers with recipe refinement, product development, and marketing. Our food sensory analysis services not only provide consumer sensory testing for product development, but also offer the sensory assessment of food quality and taste.
Packaging is not merely for attracting customers, but also to protecting and preserving food products. Improper packaging can bring health and safety risks. Therefore, the testing of the quality and safety of food packaging and other food-contacting materials, and to ensure that the packaging materials comply with all the necessary global regulations, is important to protect consumers’ health. Our laboratories can help you assess the potential hazards of your food packaging materials and styles, using a wide scope of testing approaches, such as food contact material migration testing, foreseeable use assessment, and physical hazard assessment. We can also implement modified atmosphere packaging analysis to provide valuable guidance on food packaging for extending shelf life.
Shelf life testing is an important approach to ensure the safety and quality of food products. To comply with statutory requirements, and to and keep integrity and their brand reputation, manufacturers have to accurately verify “use by” and/or “best before” date(s) for their products. The shelf-life of a product is determined by storing the product under specific storage conditions. At Lifeasible, we have a well-established platform for the evaluation of product shelf life, where a number of factors (e.g., microbiology, temperature, pH, water, etc.) are analyzed for an optimal testing protocol. The measurement of chemical, microbiological and physical changes over a specified time interval will be performed.
