For us, the safety and quality of food is paramount. That’s why we offer comprehensive analyses to detect and identify various types of toxins and contaminants in AGF and other horticultural products. We’d like to give you some of the common toxins we test for:

Toxins in brief
  • Detection of various toxins and contaminant
  • Compliance with food safety standards: Testing for pesticides, mycotoxins, heavy metals and more

1. Pesticides:

Residues of pesticides may be present on fruits and vegetables. Pesticide testing focuses on detecting these residues to ensure that produce meets regulatory standards and is safe for consumption.

2. Mycotoxins:

Some fungi produce toxins, known as mycotoxins, which can be harmful to health. Especially when stored, mycotoxins can accumulate in food products such as grains, nuts and dried fruits.

3. Heavy metals:

Testing for heavy metals, such as lead, mercury and cadmium, is important to ensure food safety. These metals can occur as contaminants in soil and can accumulate in certain crops.

4. Fertilizers and chemical contaminants:

We perform these tests to detect the presence of unwanted chemicals in the soil, such as overused fertilizers or other industrial contaminants.

5. Allergens:

Tests are performed to detect food allergens, such as gluten, nuts, dairy and other allergens. This is important for people with food allergies because it helps them avoid foods that may harm their health.

6. Bacterial contaminants:

Contamination by pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria we test very carefully to prevent food-related illnesses. We understand the seriousness of these potential public health threats. Therefore, we offer advanced analysis and testing services to detect and identify the presence of these bacteria in food

7. Toxins from fungi:

In addition to mycotoxins, certain fungi can also produce other toxins that can be harmful to health. We understand the various risks fungal toxins pose to food and public health.

At Normec Green Agro Control, we conduct all testing in accordance with strict standards and regulations to ensure the safety and quality of AGF and other horticultural products. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that consumers consume food that is free of harmful substances and safe for consumption. With our dedicated commitment to accurate analysis and regulatory compliance, we strive to be a trusted partner in protecting public health and strengthening trust in the food chain.
