OXITEST has proved to be an effective solution for SAFE for an efficient and accurate evaluation of the oxidative stability and the shelf-life of food matrices with a discrete fat content, measurements that are sometimes estimated empirically by producers.
Thanks to the OXITEST, SAFE every day supports many local producers of oil, sweet and salty cookies, fried cruschi peppers, coffee, battered peanuts, gluten-free cookies, chocolate, and novel foods such as chia seeds. Specifically, SAFE successfully evaluated the different oxidative stability of extra virgin olive oil from different cultivars, highlighting the importance of antioxidants, such as tocopherols and polyphenols, compared to the susceptibility to oxidation of fatty acids.
Moreover, the VELP OXITEST not only is perfect to test the stability of finished products, but it is also a valuable asset to assess raw materials and ingredients intended for food production.
A game-changer for SAFE analytical activities and for the Basilicata food industry, the VELP OXITEST doesn’t imply the use of toxic substances and doesn’t produce residues with environmental disposal problems.
