Beverages

At the most basic level, a beverage (a drink) is a type of liquid that you can consume for sustenance, energy or hydration. For hundreds of years, the idea of a beverage has probably been restricted to water or milk and perhaps juice squeezed from fruits. Later on we have alcohol, wine, various teas, coffees, cocktails, cocoas, ciders, and sodas. Now there are a vast variety of beverages available to us, which means that we can satisfy our thirst in countless different ways. We drink fruit juices, alcoholic beverages, soft drinks or other beverages almost every day. There are more than 1.9 billion servings of Coca-Cola’s drinks that are enjoyed in more than 200 countries each day. However, approximately 1 in 6 Americans becomes ill and 3,000 die from foodborne diseases each year, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. When food safety goes awry, food & beverage companies scramble to control food contamination as well as the public storms caused by the media. Even a single area of weakness can affect food safety and result in significant brand and reputational damage. Product design, the sourcing of products from the supply chain, hazards encountered during production processes (addressed by implementing the HACCP preventive approach), quality control, packaging, and other factors all have an impact on beverage safety. That’s really a challenge for the manufacturer to make sure every step under control to obtain safe and high quality products.

Therefore, beverage safety testing is very important for both producers and consumers. Considering the production process, you may concern with the following analytes, such as food pathogens, allergens, vitamins and mycotoxins. Here we give you a one-step solution to meet your demand.

Food pathogens

During the production process, spoilage organisms and pathogenic bacteria such as Staphylococcus and Vibrio Cholera, are a crucial problem bothering beverage industry. This issue not only impacts beverages’ quality and taste but also may lead to serious health damage. All manufacturers wish to strictly monitor these analytes and control these problems at a lower level. Read more

Allergens

According to the FDA, most packaged foods made with “major food allergen’’ including beverages marketed in the U.S. must be labeled in simple-to-understand terms. Eight foods, and ingredients containing their proteins, are defined as major food allergens. These foods account for 90% of all food allergies: milk; egg; fish, such as bass, flounder, or cod; crustacean shellfish, such as crab, lobster, or shrimp; tree nuts, such as almonds, pecans, or walnuts; wheat; peanuts; soybeans. In addition to ingredients, unintended contamination during storage and production should be tested too to protect consumers from allergy. Read more

Vitamins

As a manufacturer, you need to apply nutrition facts label to your products especially vitamins for fruit juices. For example, Vitamin D is important for healthy bones, especially among women and the elderly. Knowing the accurate data of vitamins of your own beverage, you can regulate your formula and meet your consumer requirements. Read more

Mycotoxins

In beverage production, there are various raw materials besides water such as grains and fruits. These two ingredients may be contaminated with mycotoxins like Aflatoxin and Ochratoxin. FDA stipulates the maximum level of Aflatoxin in grain which is 20 mcg/kg. To protect consumer health and avoid business losses, those ingredients should be tested safely before use. Read more
