ITC Labs Chennai is delighted to announce that they are approved with Vegan Testing. In a transition era where more and more people are starting to approach the vegetarian/vegan world, for both ethical and health reasons.

Food Adulteration

The detection of contaminations from animal derivatives in vegetarian/vegan food is a major concern for industries. Because they can have a relevant impact in the reliability of vegetarian prepared food on the market. Some products when packed are labeled as “vegan,” and testing might be done to verify that the claims on the label are accurate. This food adulteration can be international (in some cases, the adulteration of foods with types of meat is used to enhance their taste and smell) or unintentional. However, it is accepted that inadvertent contamination is the most likely source of any adulteration. Unintentional adulteration could originate from shared production lines or inadequate facilities to maintain ingredient segregation.
