PHYSICOCHEMICAL CONTROL OF FOOD
The detection limits reached in our own analytical developments satisfy the most rigorous international requirements in terms of sensitivity, specificity and selectivity.
DETERMINATION OF GLUTEN IN FOODS
In food processing, there are several critical points that can lead to gluten contamination of food when products with and without gluten are made in the same manufacturing or production line.
The consumption of manufactured products entails assuming potential risks for celiac patients, since gluten can be added to a product as an ingredient, additive, or it may contain it for technological reasons of the manufacturing process.
Therefore gluten can be present not only in products made from wheat, barley, rye and oat flour, such as bread, pasta, cakes and cookies, but also in sausages and meat derivatives, sauces, appetizers, sweets , prepared meals, etc. and even in certain medicines as an excipient.

SUPPLEMENTARY NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION
Supplementary nutritional information (which includes vitamins, amino acids, fatty acids, minerals, etc.) allows a better positioning of products with higher added value, such as dietary, fortified or enriched products, since the consumer can use the information provided to make sound decisions in the acquisition of food products.
The Biogroup Laboratory has developed highly complex chromatographic analytical methodologies for the analysis of these nutritional components. These specialized analyzes are essential for quality control of the finished product, premixes or micronutrient nuclei as raw material, and are also extremely useful during the development process of new products.
For certain developments of food products on an industrial scale, analytical methods tailored to the client's needs can be requested from the Laboratory.
Foods that can be analyzed include dairy, farinaceous, oil
