What is amino acid profiling:

A method to determine the absolute amounts of individual amino acids in your product. This method can be applied to samples containing both free amino acids as well as peptides or protein samples after hydrolysis into amino acids

Why amino acid profiling:

It is frequently used in the research and product development process to quantify different amino acids. This gives you insights into making specific adjustments to reach the desired amount of amino acids.

Test results:

Alanine, Arginine, Asparatic acid Cystine, Glutamic Acid, Glycinin, Histidine, Hydroxy-prolin, Isoleucine, leucine, lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Proline, Serine, Threonine, Tyrosine, Valine

Lead time:

5-7 days

What is microbiology testing:

Tests for pathogens and organisms can help ensure safety and hygiene of your products and mitigate risks that can be detrimental to human health.

Why microbiology testing:

Microbiology testing is one of the most important tests before your product reaches the consumers. Not only is it a test mandated by regulatory authorities worldwide, it helps give your customer a peace of mind knowing that your product is free from microbiology contamination. Also, these tests are conducted for self-life testing (See shelf-life testing)  

Test results:

Enterobacteriaceae (CFU/g), Escherichia coli (CFU/g), Escherichia coli (CFU/g), Clostridium perfringens (CFU/g), Staphylococcus aureus (CFU/g), Listeria monocytogenes (CFU/g), Salmonella (Detection in 25g)

Lead time: 7-9 days

What is nutritional panel:

It is the measurement of the nutritional content of food. The nutritional information calculated includes everything from energy to fat and protein content. The nutritional panel includes 14 parameters as required by Singapore Food Agency.

Why nutritional panel:

Nutritional panel is a legal requirement of food regulators worldwide. Furthermore, it gives your customers an overview of the nutritional profile of your product and allows them to make informed decisions on the product to meet their health requirements.

Test results:

1. Energy 2. Moisture 3. Ash 4. Protein 5. Carbohydrate 6. Total Fat 7. Saturated Fat 8. Monounsaturated Fat 9. Polyunsaturated Fat 10. Trans Fat 11. Cholesterol 12. Dietary Fiber 13. Sodium 14. Total sugar

Lead time: 5-7 days

What is PDCAAS :

It is a score that relates to a protein’s quality based on human amino acid requirements and the ability to digest the protein. A higher PDCAAS value for a consumer product means a higher percent daily value (%DV).

Why PDCAAS:

It is a score to quantify the level of protein and its bioavailability in relation to human daily requirement. It will be the test to differentiate your alternative meat product from others.

Test results: PDCAAS Score

Lead time: 2 weeks

What is proximate analysis:

A method, which determines the values of the macronutrients in food samples. It measures the proximate composition of foods which includes moisture, ash, lipid, protein and carbohydrate contents.

Why proximate analysis:

It is a cheaper way to get an overview of the nutritional profile of your product. Generally, it is used during the product development phase and in manufacturing process to ensure the nutritional quality of the end product.

Test parameters:

Moisture, Protein, Crude fat, Crude fibre, Ash, Total carbohydrate (By calculation from moisture,ash,protein,fat)

Lead time: NIL

What is shelf-life testing:

To determine microbiology stability of your food products and other indicators including sensory, physical and chemical testing.

Why shelf-life testing:

This test is mandated by regulatory authorities worldwide before launching the product to market. It helps to keep you consumers safe and your organization compliant, which both contribute to maintaining your brand’s integrity and reputation.

Test parameters:

Enterobacteriaceae (CFU/g), Escherichia coli (CFU/g), Escherichia coli (CFU/g), Clostridium perfringens (CFU/g), Staphylococcus aureus (CFU/g), Listeria monocytogenes (CFU/g), Salmonella (Detection in 25g)

Additional details required:

1) Accelerated shelf-life testing

2) Normal shelf-life testing

3) Storage conditions

4) The time interval that is usually requested/recommended

5) What are the different test parameters (as stated above)

6) Sample matrix

Lead time: Depending on the time interval chosen
