Ash, along with fat, protein, moisture, and fiber make up what are referred to as the proximate analyses in food chemistry. Proximate, meaning close or approximate, references the fact that these are tests that don’t assay for a specific molecule, but rather identify a general class of compounds by a particular characteristic. Ash analysis is a necessary first step in any mineral content analysis, whether for nutritional minerals or toxic metals. This first course in our Proximate Analysis Testing series is intended to give you a basic understanding of ash analysis and the primary testing methods used to test food for ash content. At the conclusion of this course you will earn a certificate of completion that you can download and keep for your records. There will also be an option to download a PDF copy of the lesson content to keep and use as a reference.  This course will be available to you for 1 year from the date of purchase. Read More

Fat, along with ash, protein, moisture, and fiber make up what are referred to as the proximate analyses in food chemistry. Proximate, meaning close or approximate, references the fact that these are tests that don’t assay for a specific molecule, but rather identify a general class of compounds by a particular characteristic.  Historically, many agricultural commodities such meats and dairy products have been traded and priced based on their fat content. Because of fat’s nutritional and commercial significance, it remains a critical element of Food Chemistry.   At the conclusion of this course you will earn a certificate of completion that you can download and keep for your records. There will also be an option to download a PDF copy of the lesson content to keep and use as a reference.  This course will be available to you for 1 year from the date of purchase. Read More

Food Chemistry studies the human health effects of food and food ingredients as well as their structural, functional and nutritional properties through the application of a large spectrum of technologies and various scientific disciplines.  This short course is intended to give you a basic understanding of food chemistry and the primary testing methods used to test food for quality and safety. At the conclusion of this course you will earn a certificate of completion that you can download and keep for your records. There will also be an option to download a PDF copy of the lesson content to keep and use as a reference.  This course will be available to you for 1 year from the date of purchase. Read More

Listeria monocytogenes is one of the most most common microbiological hazards to the food industry. This microorganism may be introduced into a product or a food from the plant environment, ingredients, or as a result of poor practices during food processing. This 5-part streaming video will focus on the control of this organism in the processing environment since that’s the most common cause of contamination. A quiz packet is included with your purchase for documenting employee training and assessment. Total running time: ~45 minutes Click below for a short preview:   Read More

An analytical method is a set of written instructions describing a procedure. These methods are used in activities we do daily, such as brushing teeth. Laboratories must have confidence that the methods they are using, when in the hands of an analyst, can produce reliable and accurate results which are appropriate to the analytical problem. This short course is intended to give you a basic understanding of validation and verification of analytical methods. At the conclusion of this course you will earn a certificate of completion that you can download and keep for your records. There will also be an option to download a PDF copy of the lesson content to keep and use as a reference.  This course will be available to you for 1 year from the date of purchase. Read More
