Baby Food
Strictest Requirements
Quality control for the production of infant formula and foods for young children is subjected to strictest requirements. Our analytical methods are tuned to detect even the smallest residues in soil, raw materials or processed products.

Low content of contaminants
Compliance with the strict legal requirements for baby food can only be achieved by careful choice of raw materials, for example organic materials and continuous controls. We have specialised on baby food and analyse your samples for pesticides, heavy metals, nitrate, mycotoxins, GMO and a potential microbiological load/germ content.
While there is no health hazard by contaminants from glass as such, residues of plastic-coated lids, plastic packaging or plastic bottles migrate into food. For the analysis of plasticisers (phthalates), ESBO and Bisphenole A you have a competent partner in us. Your customer service is happy to support you.
