    MEAT & MEAT PRODUCTS TESTING

    Meat speciation & traceability issues have been gathering eyeballs globally on account of instances of detection of frauds fraught with cultural and religious sensitivities. Recent cases of meat adulteration in India and overseas have led to stricter monitoring, stiffer penalties, suspension of export authorizations and licenses and brought the National Regulatory Frameworks of meat exporting nations under the scanner. Current Safety mechanisms for species identification, traceability and banned chemical residues are in focus.

    EFRAC’s development of detailed and definitive plans termed protocols for implementation of new technologies validated through on-site trial, have helped to realize better results in terms of realisation safety and authenticity of the clients’ food products. At EFRAC, Immunological & DNA-based qualitative PCR analytics for meat testing are conducted for maintaining Standard and Quality of the meat and meat products.

    Eggs & Egg Products

    Eggs are considered as one of the complete High Protein Source as it contains nine essential amino acids. Eggs are loaded with high-quality proteins, vitamins, minerals, riboflavin and selenium good fats and various trace nutrients. the majority of an egg’s nutrient package is found in the yolk.

    EFRAC tests for nutritional and proximate parameters and also for residues of antibiotics, growth promoters and other drug residue in eggs, feed and livestock. These include compounds banned from use in livestock production. EFRAC is also doing the analysis of all the parameters as per EIC (Export Inspection Council), RMP for egg products, poultry meat and poultry meat products for the current year.
