Dr Ehrenstorfer: Whats new this month - August 2020
In our ever-changing industry, it’s important to keep up with the latest developments. Our portfolio is constantly being updated in alignment with cutting-edge research, helping our customers in their quest for analytical excellence.
Each month, we’ll be taking a look at some of the latest new products on offer, starting with a glance at three key sectors in the world of food safety.
Food additives, flavours, and adulterants
Used to alter taste, colour, and shelf life, these substances are found in a wide variety of foodstuffs, from protein bars to papadums. It’s vital that reported values of these additives, flavours, and adulterants are in alignment with consumer safety regulations in whatever jurisdiction the goods in question are being distributed. Reliable analysis of these substances, then, is of utmost importance when it comes to food safety, both in terms of food intolerances and illegal or unethical tampering.

Frequently used on crops to protect them from insects, diseases, and curb the growth of destructive weeds, pesticides are an important component of the modern agricultural process. Scientific and agricultural developments, along with changing governmental regulations and global trade routes, have made necessary the testing of an evolving range of pesticides in food and environmental samples.
Our portfolio, backed by more than 40 years of experience in the sector, contains over 1700 neat pesticides and pesticide metabolite products. 100% of our analytical measurements are performed under our strict ISO/IEC 17025 scope of accreditation, and the majority of our products are produced under the scope of our ISO 17034 accreditation.

Food contact materials
Otherwise known as FCMs, these products include packaging, containers, manufacturing machinery, kitchen equipment, cutlery and utensils, tableware, and transportation vessels – essentially, anything which comes into contact with food, from harvest to consumption. In recent decades, increased focus on food safety has led to the implementation of robust processes around the world for risk management when it comes to chemical contaminants in food production and supply.
From plastic cups to ceramic bowls, and even inks used in printed packaging – no FCM is without risk if left unchecked. Our Dr. Ehrenstorfer range of FCM reference materials has been designed to support you in analytical testing of all types and to meet the needs of different regulatory methods applied around the world.
