We believe that our Laboratory and R&D Centre is the eyes and brain of our company. It is through this well-equipped facility that we are able to monitor and control the quality of raw materials and finished products at each and every stage of the production process. Our qualified and well-trained staff performs various tests as per norms and methodologies prescribed by Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and American Association of Official Agricultural Chemists (AOAC).

Our laboratory can perform all tests required for RBO and other edible oils. It is one of the few labs equipped with a modern Gas Liquid Chromatography (GLC) machine with a capillary column. This enables us to test for and control the presence of harmful ‘Trans Fats’. We also have a Spectrophotometer (to determine γ-Oryzanol content) and Lovibond® Tintometer. The various tests that we can perform in-house are:

  1. Trans Fats
  2. Fatty Acid Composition
  3. γ-Oryzanol
  4. p-Content (Phospholipids/Phosphatides)
  5. Colour (Lovibond Units)
  6. Acid Value (AV)
  7. Iodine Value (IV)
  8. Saponification Value (SV)
  9. Un-Saponifiable Matter (USM)
  10. Peroxide Value (PV)
  11. Para Anisidine Value
  12. Moisture and Insoluble Impurities
  13. Traces of Hexane
  14. Traces of Wax
  15. Other tests like Specific Gravity, Refractive Index, Cloud Point and Flash Point
