Primoris focuses on food ingredients such as glucosinolates, quercetins and carotenoids. For these three food ingredients we offer the possibility to analyze on project basis. The results can be helpful for determining the value of your product or rest product but also for sowing seed companies and plant breeders.
There is actually no legislation in place for food ingredients such as glucosinolates, quercetins and carotenoids.
Primoris’ analyses are mainly based on gas and liquid chromatography. For carotenoids, glucosinolates and quercetins we use the LC-UV.
Food ingredients are very wide spread. Primoris focuses on food ingredients such as glucosinolates, quercetins and carotenoids.
Primoris started as a spin-off of the Belgian University of Ghent and has built up quite some experience in research and projects. This makes Primoris an ideal partner for special analyses which demand a project-oriented approach.
Primoris is part of relana, the quality circle of a dozen European labs concerning analysis of pesticides and contaminants. Earlier this year Primoris saw a relana audit and received excellent feedback. In the first place the lab shows a high and stable level of quality and furthermore, the auditors were impressed with the competence of our staff.
Legislation | Inorganic arsenic in cereal, rice and babyfood
On 06/03/2023 the European Commission published regulation 2023/0465 regarding the maximum levels of inorganic arsenic in certain foods.
As of now we will analyse maleic hydrazide (MH) using LC-MS/MS instead of UV, resulting in faster and more precise results.
