Lead, cadmium, mercury and arsenic are all in the top ten on the World Health Organization (WHO) list of chemicals of major public health concern, making it important to check their levels in foods. These levels then provide one of several parameters for assessing the level of risk the substances pose to human health.
Our organisation also analyses beneficial elements for the food database; for example, manganese, iron and zinc. The results of these analyses are also used as a basis for risk and benefit assessments.
Listed below are the accredited methods we use.
Please contact us if you would like further information and/or prices for the analyses we offer.
