Oxidative Stability Test Reactor Video

Chemical reactions occurring between atmospheric oxygen and food sensitive components are some of the most important causes of product degradation. Specifically, fat oxidation is recognized as one of the main factors which affects Food shelf life. For this purpose, Velp Scientifica has developed the OXITEST, an innovative instrument, able to provide the lab operator with high added value information related to the fat oxidation processes in samples of foods, oils and fats.
The determination of the oxidation stability of samples (solid, doughy or liquid), in order to determine their quality or to determine their state of preservation is made directly on the whole sample, without preliminary fat separation.
