The Food Industry

The food industry is responsible for carrying out all processes related to food production, from obtaining raw materials to the elaboration, packaging, and distribution of products. The main raw materials come from plants (from agriculture), animals (from livestock), and fungi.

Currently, there is greater concern for food safety, so stricter regulations and regulations have been implemented regarding hygiene and product quality. In this context, gas chromatography (GC) and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) are the most commonly used techniques for quantitative and qualitative analysis of food.

At Teknokroma, we offer all the necessary materials for these techniques, such as columns, accessories for gas chromatography, septa, ferrules, syringes, certified syringe filters, among others. The food industry requires analysis of a wide variety of compounds present in food, such as food additives, antioxidants, colourings, sweeteners, aflatoxins, flavour and aroma components, and environmental contaminants such as pesticides, herbicides, and other toxins.

Therefore, we offer a wide range of columns for the analysis of wines, alcohols, fatty acids in oils, fragrances and flavours, aldehydes, FAMES separations, phytosanitary products, sterols in oils, glycols in wine, essential oil analysis, sugar separation, triglycerides in milk, allergens in cosmetics, and many other applications. In addition, for sample preparation, we have a variety of applications that use SPE and QuEChERS tubes for the determination of pesticide residues in fruits and vegetables.
