  • Amino Acid Profiling:

“In 1806, the discovery of amino acids, organic compounds, revolutionized our understanding of life’s fundamental building blocks. Amino acids, the molecular precursors to proteins, are indispensable for sustaining life processes. Classified into three groups—Essential, Nonessential, and Conditional—amino acids play diverse roles in human physiology.

Of the 20 amino acids crucial for human function, 9 are deemed ‘Essential,’ as the body cannot synthesize them independently. These amino acids, including Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, and others, are sourced from animal proteins found in meat, eggs, and poultry. However, plant-based sources such as quinoa, buckwheat, edamame, and tofu offer a complete array of essential amino acids, making them valuable ‘Complete Sources of Protein.’

The ‘Nonessential’ group comprises amino acids that the human body can produce internally, such as Alanine, Asparagine, and Glutamic Acid. Conversely, the ‘Conditional’ group, encompassing amino acids like Arginine and Glutamine, are required primarily during periods of illness or stress.

At KIIT TBI ATF laboratory, our expertise extends to comprehensive amino acid analysis across a spectrum of food, feed, and agricultural commodities. Through our Amino Acid Profiling Package, we ensure meticulous scrutiny and precise insights into the amino acid composition, facilitating informed decisions in nutritional and agricultural realms.”

  • Allergen Screening:

The human immune system (HIS) serves as a formidable defense mechanism, protecting the body from harmful pathogens and foreign substances that enter through various routes such as inhalation, skin contact, or ingestion. While these organisms and substances are innocuous to most individuals, they trigger allergic reactions, termed “allergens,” in susceptible individuals. Allergies, coined in 1906, manifest as sinus congestion, skin inflammation, respiratory issues, gastrointestinal discomfort, or even life-threatening anaphylaxis.

Food proteins are a significant trigger for allergies, affecting approximately 6% of adults and 8% of children globally. Eight food types—eggs, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, wheat, soybeans, and sesame—account for about 90% of all food allergies. Regulatory bodies such as Codex Alimentarius and the European Union mandate the labeling of major food allergens, with the EU specifying 14 food items, types, and chemical compounds, and the US identifying eight major allergens with sesame slated for inclusion from January 1, 2023.

Indian food safety standards also list eight human allergens under the Food Safety Standards (FSS) Act, 2006, requiring food business operators (FBOs) to prevent unintended allergen presence and provide detailed labeling of potential allergens and cross-contamination risks. Similar regulations apply to pet food, ensuring it remains free of harmful substances, including allergens.

Compliance with regulatory standards necessitates certification by independent and accredited food testing organizations. Common allergen screening methods for food testing include ELISA, mass spectrometry (MS), and real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), ensuring the safety and integrity of food products for consumers.

  • Mycotoxin and Endotoxin:

Mycotoxins, toxic secondary metabolites produced by filamentous fungi like Aspergillus, Fusarium, and Penicillium, pose a significant threat to human and animal health. These small organic molecules, including Aflatoxin B1, Fumonisins, and Patulin, can cause DNA damage and interfere with fetal development, leading to acute and chronic toxicity symptoms such as skin irritation, weakened immune response, and neurological damage.

Aflatoxin-producing fungi contaminate crops during cultivation, harvest, or storage, posing risks to human and animal health upon ingestion. Cereals, tree nuts, cottonseed, and groundnuts are particularly vulnerable to contamination. While unrefined vegetable oils may initially contain aflatoxins, refining processes render them harmless. Aflatoxin B1, the most toxic among the known aflatoxins, poses significant carcinogenic risks.

Regulatory bodies worldwide, including Codex Alimentarius, the European Union, and the USFDA, set limits on mycotoxin levels in food products to ensure consumer safety. These limits vary depending on the type of mycotoxin and food category. Food business operators are required to conduct testing at various stages of food processing to mitigate contamination risks.

Laboratory methods for mycotoxin analysis include high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS), providing accurate quantitative results. Additionally, semi-quantitative and qualitative methods such as enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) and fluorescence spectrometry offer rapid screening options.

Enterotoxins produced by bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus cereus, and Clostridium botulinum pose additional food safety concerns, causing food intoxication and gastrointestinal illnesses. Rapid detection methods such as ELISA-based assays and enzyme-linked fluorescence assays (EFLA) play a crucial role in ensuring the safety of food products.

This scientific endeavor commenced with the genetic modification of bacteria in 1973, culminating in the creation of human insulin-producing bacteria in 1982, marking the inception of consumer GMO products approved by regulatory authorities like the FDA. Notably, the approval of the GM tomato in 1994 marked a significant milestone as the first plant GMO.

Products manufactured with or containing GMO ingredients are termed genetically modified (GM) foods and feeds. Pest and herbicide-resistant GM crops are cultivated or imported in over 70 countries worldwide, although unintentional introduction into non-GM food and feed production remains a concern. The debate surrounding GMOs underscores the need for comprehensive safety studies to ascertain their suitability for consumption.

In the United States, regulatory oversight of GM crops falls under the purview of three agencies: the USEPA, USFDA-DHHS, and USDA-APHIS. Each agency administers regulations governing various aspects of GMO cultivation, including bio-pesticides, under relevant federal acts such as FIFRA and FFDCA. Pre-market approval by the FDA is mandatory for non-GRAS GM crops, ensuring compliance with safety standards.

Similarly, the EU provisions aim to facilitate informed consumer choices by enforcing authorization procedures, supervision, and clear labeling of GMOs in the market. In India, GMO-related activities are governed by regulations outlined in the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986, through the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF).

Detection of GMOs relies on robust methods such as DNA-based and protein-based techniques, with DNA analysis enabling genome identification of genetic modifications and protein-based assays like ELISA facilitating GMO detection.

  • Petroleum

Petroleum testing plays a pivotal role in assessing the chemical composition of crude oil, a complex blend of hydrocarbons and various elemental impurities. Through comprehensive analysis, including the detection of sulfur, nitrogen, and oxygen content, as well as heavy metals and sediments, refineries can refine crude oil to meet specific standards and ensure suitability for various applications.

In the refining process facilitated within refineries, crude oil undergoes fractionation, which involves separation, conversion, and purification phases. This process yields a range of fractions, including petrol, diesel, and naphtha, which are further categorized into fuel oil and lubricants based on viscosity, octane number, and distillation range. Understanding these properties is crucial for determining product suitability, storage, and transportation considerations.

Moreover, with the rising significance of sustainable energy solutions, biofuels are gaining prominence. Derived from renewable sources such as plant biomass or animal waste, biofuels offer environmental benefits and contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Testing biofuels ensures their quality and compliance with regulatory standards, supporting their effective integration into the energy landscape as alternative sources.
