Chemical Analysis

  • Centesimal analysis:
    determination of ashes, proteins, fats, fibre, water and sugars
  • Determination of fats: acidity, pH, melting point, iodine value, peroxide alue, volatile fatty acids and Kreiss test (on fat or the lipid fraction)
  • Determination of protein fraction: amino acid composition.
  • Contamination analysis: microtoxins and additives.
  • Active ingredient contents: liposoluble vitamins (A, D3, E, K ) hydrosoluble vitamins (C and vitamins from group B), organic acids.
  • Metal contents: cobalt, chrome, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, copper, selenium, zinc 
  • Determination of physical characteristics:
    granulometry and specific weight.
