Food & Cosmetic Component Standards

reference standards for the analysis of food and beverages, cosmetic, and personal care products

For use in the analysis of food and cosmetics and other analytical applications, we offer a comprehensive portfolio comprised of thousands of standards and certified reference materials (CRMs). Our high-purity standards help to keep the food and cosmetic products safe and allow the manufacturers and laboratories to meet all legal regulations for label claims.

Allergens

Our selection of allergen standards includes analytical standards and CRMs of food allergen proteins and allergenic fragrances compliant to IFRA. Besides the single component standards, we also offer two multi-component CRMs of fragrance allergens.

Flavors and Fragrances

This range includes more than 500 flavor and fragrance standards for use in the quality control of your food and cosmetic products. Our portfolio focuses on the analytical standards of aroma compounds from the “EU positive list of authorized flavoring substances” (EFSA 10/2012). The range includes allergenic compounds, flavor enhancers, sweeteners, as well as the fragrance substances of cosmetics, perfumes, and essential oils.

Extractables and Leachables / Food Contact Materials

Extractables and Leachables (E&L) are chemical compounds with the potential to migrate into pharmaceuticals, clinical products or food from the packaging material, tubing, or medical devices. This can result in their exposure to the patients or consumers of food and beverage products. This requires the manufacturers of pharmaceutical products and medical devices to perform extensive E&L studies for the identification of compounds that might leach into the product and, if necessary, assessment of the toxicity of these chemicals. Although there is no finite list of analytes to be tested for, there are certain monomers or additives that are very often detected in the extractables and leachables.

To facilitate the identification and quantification of extractables and leachables, we offer a comprehensive portfolio of reference materials. The list includes more than 200 certified reference materials and analytical standards for commonly found extractables and leachables. The portfolio also includes many products listed in the positive lists of a big range of global food contact materials regulations, such as the EU regulation 10/2011 for plastics intended to come into contact with food.

Amines

Biogenic amines are formed in food products by the bacterial decarboxylation of amino acids. They can be harmful to humans if ingested in high amounts. Our portfolio of amine standards includes analytical standards and CRMs of different amines for the analysis of food, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical products.

Genetically Modified Organisms

We offer more than 100 matrix materials for the different levels of various genetically modified organisms (GMOs), manufactured by the European joint research center (JRC).

Biotoxins and Mycotoxins

We offer a wide range of analytical standards and CRMs for various biotoxins such as mycotoxins, marine toxins, microcystins, and alkaloids for the safety testing of food, animal feed, botanicals, cosmetics, and other consumables. The portfolio includes neat materials, solutions, matrix materials, and also a range of isotope labeled analogs.

Colorants

Our portfolio of food colorants or dyes reference materials includes both synthetic (such as diazo dyes) as well as natural (such as chlorophyll or carotenoids) pigments. The range comprises of both the authorized and restricted or banned dyes.

Organic acids

Our portfolio of organic acid standards comprises of neat standards as well as CRM solutions for the chromatographic analysis of food and metabolomics testing.

Sweeteners

We offer a range of more than 25 analytical standards for the most common sweeteners present in food and beverage products. The portfolio includes synthetic sweeteners as well as carbohydrate and stevia glycosides.

UV blockers

UV blockers are chemical compounds that have a high capacity of absorbing UV light. They are used in cosmetic products to provide protection from sunlight and to avoid sunburns.

Our portfolio includes analytical standards, including isotope labeled standards as well as CRMs of various organic and inorganic UV blockers.
