Velp Oxidation Stability Reactor - OXITEST

 NEW: Oxitest is recognized by AOCS

The Oxitest Method is Officially recognized by AOCS, the American Oil Chemist’s Society and it is included in the 7th edition of the Official Methods and Recommended Practices of the AOCS.

The Oxitest method is identified as AOCS International Standard Procedure Cd 12c-16 for the determination of the oxidation stability of food oils and fat.

 Multiple Application
Prediction of the oxidative stability during shelf-life studies
Tests the product at defined time intervals; builds an experimental curve
Evaluation of the adequacy of storage conditions
Evaluation of the best packaging solution
Comparison of the oxidative stability of different formulas for food preparations
Evaluation of the oxidative stability of vegetable oils of different botanical origin
Evaluation of the effectiveness of antioxidants
Information on product oxidation when the oxidation flex is not visible
Especially useful for products with a low fat content (4-5%)
Product oxidation can be achieved by combining the OXITEST with GC
Oxidative stability test of incoming raw materials and outgoing finished products
