Agriculture and Food Proximate Analysis
Using SGS’s proximate analysis services lets you assess the nutritional value of your animal feed while satisfying the appropriate health and safety regulations.
Proximate analysis is therefore vital if you want to protect livestock, as well as your reputation, around the world.
Our proximate analysis testing incorporates wet chemistry methods or near-infrared reflectance (NIR) technology. This allows us to firstly separate, then identify, the categories of compounds present in a mixture. Either way, our technicians are seeking and analysing protein, fat, moisture, ash and fibre in your animal feed to help assess its nutritional value.
Approved and accredited laboratories
To maintain our reputation for independence, integrity and innovation, our proximate analysis laboratories operate under strict guidelines and are ISO 17025 and ISO 9001:2008 accredited. Staffed by scientists and technicians with years of laboratory experience – as well as degrees in chemistry, microbiology and agronomy – our labs have also earned the approval of several feed associations.
By adhering to the highest industry and global governance standards, our proximate analysis services ensure that your animal feed inspires confidence and that feed rations meet producers’ needs. Contact SGS to find out how we can help you.
