Carbohydrates Testing

Carbohydrates Testing : Canada

From a chemical viewpoint, a carbohydrate is an organic compound with the empirical formula Cm(H2O)n. This means it consists out of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. The term carbohydrate is most common in biochemistry, where it is a synonym of saccharide (meaning ‘sugar’ in Greek). Carbohydrates are divided into four chemical groupings: monosaccharides, disaccharides, oligosaccharides, and polysaccharides.

Carbohydrates are very important components in food and feed and have numerous functions; energy sources, sweeteners,as a creator of physical properties (like texture and viscosity) and as dietary fibre. This has led to a necessity for accurate high quality analyses of the carbohydrate composition and content in food and feed, including raw materials.  

Our Carbohydrates Testing Laboratory services:

Routine carbohydrate testing

Our routine carbohydrate testing portfolio includes the basic carbohydrates like monosaccharides, disaccharides, various oligosaccharides, alditols (sugar alcohols) and starches. Our routine research services provide accurate test results with reliable turnaround times.

Dietary Fibre testing

We are experts in dietary fibre testing and make use of the newest AOAC 2009.01 and AOAC 2011.25 methods which deliver the most precise testing results regarding (high molar weight) soluble and insoluble dietary fibres and prebiotics. For a large number of different dietary fibres we offer dedicated tests.
