DairyGuard provides heightened protection from supply chain risks to the safety and quality of milk powder, and tests for unknown adulterants, as well as known compounds such as protein, moisture and fat content.
“Milk powder has been identified by many agencies as an ingredient with high risk for adulteration, creating a greater need for all food manufacturers to employ a reliable screening method,” said PerkinElmer food director Sharon Palmer.
“To avoid food safety issues, such as the melamine incident in 2008, food manufacturers have to screen for not only known contaminants like pesticides and drug residues, but also unknown contaminants that might be unsafe substitutions,” she added. “DairyGuard will give food suppliers greater confidence in their ingredients and help to ensure a safe end product for the consumer.”
