Jordi Labs has strived to provide the highest standard of laboratory testing services for food and beverage products for decades, building experience in the detection and identification of contaminants and compounds in consumable goods. This sector is extremely challenging for analytical chemists because the quantitative nature of studies is constantly underpinned by the qualitative properties of the product. The priority is typically to ensure that goods are: compliant with Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations; thermodynamically stable in storage and transit conditions; and display optimal shelf-life characteristics to mitigate losses due to spoiling. Yet additional considerations must be made for consumer experience with regards to taste, texture, flavor, and product consistency.
At Jordi Labs, we have developed a range of unique laboratory testing services for food and beverage manufacturers. These studies are designed to the independent needs of our customers and may encompass a number of cutting-edge analytical techniques. We have custom-designed studies using analytical technologies as varied as:
- Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy;
- Gel-permeation chromatography (GPC);
- Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LCMS);
- Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy;
- Pyrolysis mass spectrometry (PYMS);
- Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS).
Using these techniques, we have successfully provided innovative deformulation and formulation laboratory testing services to support method development and quality assurance (QA). This is critical for the food and beverage sector, where regulations and certifications are understandably stringent.
We have also levied our unique insight to demonstrate the quantitation of compounds known to impart undesirable end-product qualities. This establishes a basis for improving the sensory qualities of food and drink products through bespoke laboratory testing services.
