Quality testing of eggs and egg products

Egg is a product of animal origin with a high nutritional value, through the content of first degree proteins, ensuring a complete and perfectly balanced nutrition, through the high content of proteins, low amounts of saturated fats, minerals, vitamins and other nutrients. For example, egg contains: protein (~ 6.3g), fat (~ 4.55g), calcium (~ 24.2mg), magnesium (~ 4.45mg), iron, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12, A, E, D, K), etc.

Egg is a very valuable food, used in human nutrition, as a food for both dietary purposes and in normal nutrition, as well as in the food industry for obtaining egg powder, pastries, pasta, mayonnaise, sauces, ice cream and other products. By eggs, without another name is meant that they come only from chickens, for the others must be mentioned the species from which they come (duck eggs, goose eggs, quail eggs, turkey eggs, etc.).

Counterfeiting of products is the operation by which the use value of a product is modified, for fraudulent purposes. The objectives of the expertise in case of counterfeiting of the goods (the egg in our case) consist in detecting the falsified evidence through standardized and accredited methods of analysis as well as the way of falsification respecting the norms and legislation imposed by law.

ICA R&D can offer you a complete and detailed analysis of this food class in order to ensure that your product is a safe product for consumption and that it respects the norms and limits imposed by the legislation in force.
