Ethoxyquin Test

Ethoxyquin* is a quinoline-based antioxidant used as a food preservative (E324) and a pesticide (under commercial names such as "Stop-Scald"). It is commonly used as a preservative in pet foods to prevent the rancidification of fats. Ethoxyquin is also commonly used in spices to prevent color loss due to oxidation of the natural carotenoid pigments.
Since May 18th 2012, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan has tested Ethoxyquin residue -an anti-oxidant substance popularly used in preserving food as apples, chilies, fruits, animal feed and aquatic feed, and found out that there are samples exceed maximum residue limits (MRLs) of 0.01 ppm. In September 2012, Japan's Food Safety Commission announced new regulations that would impose compulsory testing for ethoxyquin in shrimp consignments.

Bio Synergy Laboratories, with the technical team and high resolution instruments, have the capability to test the ethoxyquin residue in the seafood and feed samples down to 0.01ppm. For more information, kindly contact Bio Synergy Laboratories.
