Food Additive Standards

Certified reference materials for food and beverage quality control testing

Our extensive portfolio for food additives comprises analytical standards and certified reference materials (CRMs) according to ISO 17034 and ISO/IEC 17025 double accreditation. In the European Union (EU), food additives are encoded by the “E numbers” which are assessed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). E numbers are commonly listed on the labels of food and beverage products and indicate the codes for substances that are used as food additives. Our CRMs are ideal for use in several analytical applications including but not limited to pharma release testing, pharma method development for qualitative and quantitative analyses, food and beverage quality control testing, and other calibration needs.

Antibiotics (E700 – 799)

Antibiotics are substances that can prevent the growth of microorganisms in animals and humans. Some foods such as meats, eggs, etc. contain antibiotics, as antibiotics are injected to farm animals to treat them from infectious diseases or to prevent them from getting infected.

Our range of VETRANAL® analytical standards includes bacitracin A, tetracycline, chlortetracycline, and oxytetracycline hydrochloride, benzathine penicilline G tetrahydrate, spiramycin from Streptomyces sp., and monensin sodium and salinomycin monosodium salt hydrate.

Glazing agents, gases and sweeteners (E900 – 999)

Glazing agents are the substances that form a waxy coating around the food to give a shiny and polished appearance while protecting the surface from water loss.

Sweeteners are the food additives that are natural and artificial substances added to increase the sweet taste of food and beverages.

Nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide gases are mainly used by the food industry during production, packing, storing, and transporting food items. Gases thus used help in prolonging the shelf-life, retain the freshness, lower production cost, and increase the production volume.
