Food & Agriculture Product Testing

Cereals, Pulses & Cereal Products Testing

Doctors’ Analytical Laboratories perform precision testing for a wide range of parameters for Cereals, Pulses & its products using Hyphenated instruments through a team of highly trained scientists.

Test Parameters

  • Physical & General Analysis (extraneous matter, damaged grains, weevilled grains, inorganic matter, mould, discolored seeds, etc.)
  • Chemical Analysis (moisture, total ash, gluten, rancidity, pH, density, acid content, etc.)
  • Nutritional Analysis & Labelling (energy, protein, carbohydrates, total sugar, etc.)
  • Fatty acid profile (SFA, MUFA and PUFA) & Trans fatty acids
  • Naturally Occurring Toxic Substances (Agaric acid, Hydrocyanic acid, Hypercine and Safrole)
  • Vitamins (A, D, E, B12, C)
  • Amino Acid profile
  • Minerals (calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, etc.)
  • Mycotoxins (total aflatoxin, aflatoxin B1, aflatoxin B2, ochratoxin A, etc.)
  • Heavy metal residues (lead, tin, arsenic, copper, cadmium, etc.)
  • Melamine
  • Additives (added flavoring & coloring matter, phosphates, beta carotene, phytosterols etc.)
  • Pesticide Residues
  • Sensory Evaluation
  • Shelf Life Testing
  • Microbiological parameters (total plate count, total coliform count, yeast and mould count, salmonella and shigella, E. coli, etc.)
