CDR FOODLAB COOKING AND FRYING OIL ANALYZER FOR SNACKS

CDR Cooking and frying oil analyzer for snacks

Monitoring the Degradation of Cooking Oil or Deep Frying Oil and the Shelf Life of Fried Snacks with CDR FoodLab®

Fast and easy chemical analyses to perform quality control on deep-frying oil or cooking oil and determine the shelf life of fried snacks.

CDR FoodLab® is the ideal chemical analysis system to monitor the degradation of frying oil, cooking oil, waste oil.

It can determine:

  • Free Fatty Acids (FFA) in 1 minute
  • Peroxide Value in 4 minutes
  • p-Anisidine Value in 2 minutes

photometric reading and optimized methods enable the CDR FoodLab® system to guarantee reliable results that are correlated with traditional methods.

The system is so easy to use that it can be utilized straight on the production line, even by personnel with no previous specific lab tech experience.

When testing fried snacks, the system speeds up traditional analytical procedures, simplifies the sample preparation, which does not require the use of toxic solvents, and removes all risks for the operator.

How to test cooking and frying Oil ?

Performing chemical analyses on deep-frying oil and fried products is simple and fast because sample preparation, if any, is minimal.
Ready to use, pre-vialed reagents allow:

  • not to get in touch with toxic or carcinogenic compounds;
  • to avoid using extractor hoods;
  • not to wash either containers or traditional glassware

With CDR FoodLab®, chemical tests on deep-frying oil or on fried products are performed in just a few steps and the result is automatically calculated, displayed and printed in just a few minutes in its unit of measure.

Determining the shelf life of fried snack in 3 steps in just a few minutes

It becomes possible to determine the shelf life of snacks by periodically monitoring the oxidation status and the rancidity of the oils contained in the different products.

With the CDR system you extract the oil to analyze with a simple mechanical treatment. On the oil extracted you can determine in 10 minutes: FFA, Peroxide Value and p-Anisidine Value. Determining the shelf life of finished products does no longer require the use of c , complicated extraction methods, high costs for special waste disposal and extraction hoods. Risks for the operator are eliminated and the environmental impact is minimized.

With the CDR system, you can perform your tests in total autonomy

Neither skilled staff nor a dedicated external laboratory is needed to use our systems. CDR FoodLab® optimizes traditional testing methods, making them faster and easier, while guaranteeing accuracy standards in line with the reference methods.

Reagents come in aluminum packages containing 10 test tubes each to perform 10 tests (or packages for 100 tests containing 10 single packages of 10 test tubes each).

Just a few steps and results are yielded right away

Just a few steps will suffice to carry out your analysis in a rapid way in total autonomy. The system is composed of both the analyzer based on photometric technology and a kit of low toxicity, pre-vialed reagents, developed by CDR.

CDR FoodLab® is cost-effective because it does not require the use of expensive equipment and does not entail maintenance, assistance or calibration costs.

How is CDR FoodLab System composed?

Instruments

CDR FoodLab® Analysis System uses an analyzer based on photometric technology, available in two versions, and a dedicated kit of pipettes.

The ease and reliability of the system is based on exclusive technical features:

  • reading cells are equipped with state-of-the-art LED emitters;
  • reading and incubation cells are thermostated at 37 ° C;
  • the analyzer is supplied pre-calibrated, no further calibration or maintenance is required;
  • instruments can be equipped with a printer or PC connection.
  •  

Reagent Kits

CDR FoodLab® Analysis Systems use low toxicity disposable pre-vialed reagents, specifically developed by the research laboratories of CDR.

The use of pre-vialed reagents and dedicated analytical procedures allows:

  • a sample preparation that is quick and easy, when needed at all;
  • making analytical procedures extremely fast and easy;
  • removing all needs for complex calibration procedures;
  • removing all needs to handle toxic or carcinogenic agents;
  • making the amount of chemical waste generated only a fraction of the waste generated by standard methods.

Reagents come in packages containing 10 test tubes each, to perform 10 tests (or packages for 100 tests containing 10 single packages of 10 test tubes each).

Save your time

To assess the degradation of frying oil and the oxidation status of finished products, CDR FoodLab® relies on analytical procedures and dedicated reagents specifically developed by the research laboratories of CDR that allow:

  • a sample preparation that is quick and easy, when needed at all;
  • making analytical procedures extremely fast and easy;
  • removing all needs for complex calibration procedures.

Moreover, CDR FoodLab® allows accelerating analytical procedures to determine the degradation of frying oil or the shelf life of fried snacks because it features:

  • thermostated incubation cells
  • multitasking mode
  •  

These features allow performing several analyses at the same time on the same sample or sixteen different assays for the same parameter on a batch of different samples.
