Organoleptic Analysis: How Our Sensory Panel Can Sell More of your Product

Organoleptic analysis is an important aspect in gauging a product’s shelf-life and marketability. Even when data shows that products are safe and meet nutritional claims, it’s still imperative to examine how the product is perceived by the senses.

Taking Control of Food Spoilage and Safety in the Era of Food Microbiomics

In this webinar, Gregory Siragusa will present newer technology that allows us to view the makeup of microbial populations or the microbiome independent of culturing. This emerging field is called Microbiomics and uses modern DNA sequencing to assemble the microbial profile of samples. How this information can be used to enhance product stability as well as food safety will be discussed.

Safe Feed/Safe Food Code Update

The SFSF (Safe Feed/Safe Food) Code is updating. Join us for a webinar hosted by Eurofins and AFIA to see the upcoming changes to the guidance document. In this webinar, Henry Turlington, Ph.D., will explain the new criteria and what you will need to do to stay compliant.
