Food and Beverage Testing We, at FRAC, test variet

We, at FRAC, test variety of products from raw materials to the processed food articles. Some of them being: rice, wheat, coffee, juices, oil, bakery & confectionery items, Alcoholic drinks, milk, etc. Not just food testing but FRAC is capable of testing water as well. It is a certified lab with one of the best accreditations in its bucket as NABL and BIS. At FRAC we have three labs for testing the components effectively, namely Chemical, Instrumental and Microbiological. Chemical lab is meant to test the chemicals present in the food and beverages, instrumental lab tests the metal content present in the food & beverages whereas microbiological lab tests the spoilage of the products due to microbial organisms. At FRAC we have best instruments and staff to provide accurate results to our clients. Instruments like HPLC to test vitamins, preservatives, NOTS, antioxidants, artificial sweeteners, pungency; Gas Chromatograph to test pesticides, cholesterol; ICP-OES to test heavy metals and metals; FTIR to test characterization and mineral oil; Gamma counter for testing radioactivity are some effective instruments that the lab has to deliver quality results.

Research and Development

FICCI Research and Analysis Centre (FRAC) not only aims at providing best quality testing and results services, but its state of the art Research and Development facility makes sure that our consumers get to have all the added information about their products. Our R&D wing prepared many healthy products right here at our Dwarka Centre! Therapeutic Food : Therapeutic food in general, is any food product or products, enhanced nutritionally, and thus, made to be more energy-dense and nutrient-dense. When needed, usually in the emergency situations, it should be used in effect as medicine, in conjunction with necessary therapy, for as short a time as possible. The subject of this commentary is a specific type of therapeutic food, now almost always in the form of commercial products, which in te last several years has leapt onto the nutrition scene. It has some special benefits. It is creating new opportunities, new challenges, and in our judgement, an increasing number of new problems. The this is to warn that the promotion of therapeutic food and its wider use may well undermine breastfeeding, which for children between 6-24+ months of age, is the best safeguard against malnutrition. Therapeutic food is high in energy and protein, with added electrolytes, mineral and vitamins.
High Fibre Bread : High fibre is used to lower glucose levels, and increasing the dietary bulk. Rice bran contents were used as an ingredient to increase the nutritional value of bread. With this view point, the high fibre bread was prepared.
Badam Kesar Milk Fortification : Health drink full of nutrition. Useful for all age group people. Simple recipe of milk kesar fortified, with appropriate vitamin and mineral mix to provide adequate nutrition.
Diabodellite Cookies : New products were developed/designed for one of our customers from the bakery industry, new ingredients were introduced to increase the binding of the prepared cookies by our department and thereby, increasing the storage and logistics problem faced by them. This product was specially designed for diabetic patients to lower their blood pressure
