Though it may be the last step of the food manufacturing chain, food testing is the most important process since it determines the safety of food for use. The process is vitally necessary to ensure that food is free of physical, chemical and biological hazards, but it is also done to provide information about various characteristics of food, including the structure, composition and physicochemical properties. There are various methods of food testing, including analytical chemistry testing, sensory testing, nutrition analysis and microbiology testing.
Food testing has always been critical for consumer safety, but it experienced a boom throughout the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, the global food safety testing market was estimated at $17.4 billion in 2020, and it is projected to reach $24.4 billion by 2026. Food safety professionals continued to work during the pandemic when they were needed the most, sparking new technologies and innovations that will be used for years to come.
Other important topics include representative sampling, pathogen environment monitoring and food fraud. Find food testing webinars on all of these topics and more by exploring the library below.
