Meat & Seafood Testing

Meat and Seafood Testing

Why is it important to test Meat & Seafoods?

Meat and Seafood testing plays a crucial role in protecting public health, ensuring product quality, maintaining regulatory compliance, preventing fraud, and supporting trade, making it an indispensable aspect of the food industry.
    Meat and seafood testing is critically important for several reasons:
    Ensuring Food Safety: Testing helps detect harmful pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, parasites, and toxins that can cause foodborne illnesses. By identifying and mitigating these risks, testing helps prevent outbreaks of diseases like salmonellosis, E. coli infection, and listeriosis, thereby safeguarding public health.
    Quality Assurance: Testing helps maintain the quality and integrity of meat and seafood products by identifying contaminants, spoilage organisms, and other factors that can affect taste, texture, and appearance. Ensuring high quality is essential for consumer satisfaction and confidence in the food supply chain.
    Compliance with Regulations: Governments and regulatory bodies impose strict standards and regulations on the production, processing, and sale of meat and seafood products to protect consumers. Testing helps ensure compliance with these regulations, which may include limits on the presence of contaminants, additives, and allergens.
    Preventing Food Fraud: Meat and seafood products are susceptible to adulteration and mislabeling, which can deceive consumers and compromise their safety and quality. Testing, especially DNA analysis, helps verify the authenticity and origin of products, reducing the risk of food fraud and ensuring transparency in the supply chain.
    Supporting Trade: International trade in meat and seafood products requires adherence to stringent quality and safety standards to facilitate cross-border commerce. Testing helps demonstrate compliance with import/export regulations, enabling access to global markets and promoting economic growth in the food industry.

    Common methods to test Meat/Seafood!

Microbiological Testing: This involves analyzing samples for the presence of bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi. Pathogens such as Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria monocytogenes are of particular concern.
Chemical Analysis: Chemical testing can detect residues of antibiotics, pesticides, heavy metals, and other contaminants that may be present in meat and seafood.
Allergen Testing: This type of testing is crucial for identifying potential allergens such as peanuts, soy, gluten, and shellfish that may inadvertently contaminate meat and seafood products.
Species Identification: With the increasing concern over food fraud, especially in seafood, DNA testing can confirm the species of meat or seafood being sold to ensure authenticity and prevent mislabeling.
Sensory Evaluation: While not as scientific as other methods, sensory evaluation involves assessing the appearance, smell, texture, and taste of meat and seafood products to determine their overall quality.

    Have you ever wondered if you are eating real Meat and Seafood?

These days due to increasing demand and with the intention of making more profit, meat and seafood vendors adulterate with cheaper meat and fish species.
Shrimp, including various types such as white, pink, tiger, rock, brown, and royal-red, ranks among the most beloved shellfish delicacies. Renowned for its delectable taste and high nutritional value, shrimp offers a rich source of high-quality protein, essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants like astaxanthin and Omega-3 fatty acids.
However, due to its significant commercial value within the seafood industry, shrimp is susceptible to food fraud, impacting importers, exporters, trading partners, agents, as well as customers and consumers alike. To combat this issue, various testing methods are employed, with real-time PCR emerging as the gold standard for species authentication and detection of adulteration. Compared to ELISA-based protein tests, PCR tests offer superior accuracy and sensitivity. If you are buying from the same vendor periodically, then it is better to test for adulteration before you consume.
In addition to species authentication, we offer a comprehensive range of analytical services including chemical nutritional analysis, detection of GMO levels, microbiology analysis for various microbes including fungi, yeast, molds, lactobacillus, salmonella, Klebsiella, Vibrio, Listeria, E. coli, Clostridium botulinum, and Staphylococcus aureus, as well as shelf-life studies. Our testing also encompasses analysis for contaminants such as pesticides, preservatives, colors, formalin, aflatoxins, and more.
AMMAGENOMICS offers PCR tests for adulteration of meat and seafood.
While shrimp is a delectable delicacy enjoyed by many, it can trigger allergies in some individuals. Therefore, AMMAGENOMICS also offer skin allergy tests and food testing services to ensure the safety of seafood-free products for those with sensitivities.

    What are the other meat tests that we do?

We do test adulteration in all meats. For example, mutton and chicken are adulterated with dog meat, cat meat, beef, pork, and broiler. On top of that hormones and steroids are injected for rapid growth and to prevent infections in these animals. After the animals are butchered for consumption, the meat and seafood are refrigerated for days and months by adding chemical preservatives including formalin which are highly dangerous. At AMMAGENOMICS we test for Nattu kozhi, native breed, spoiled fish, pathogen, salmonella, amoeba, fungi clostridia, enteric, etc.

Why test at AMMAGENOMICS?

At AMMAGENOMICS, we utilize highly sensitive PCR assays capable of detecting even trace amounts of pig, beef, chicken, or other animal and bird meat in shrimp samples. This capability is particularly crucial for ensuring compliance with religious dietary restrictions such as Jain, Kosher, or Halal certifications, as farmed shrimp may inadvertently contain prohibited meat sources. Our advanced detection methods can identify pig presence at concentrations as low as 0.01%, enabling the detection of adulterated shrimp at a rate of 1 in 10,000.

We pride ourselves on our rapid turnaround time for testing and reporting, adhering to stringent international quality standards. Choosing to test with us and obtain certification through our OORJV program ensures 100% customer satisfaction and confidence in the quality and authenticity of shrimp products.

Prolonged consumption of adulterated meat and seafood leads to various diseases like asthma, obesity, cholesterol, high blood pressure, oxidation of body cells, cardiac problems, etc.
