Food | Fat Oil and Essential Oil

The analysis of the purity and quality of animal and vegetable fats and oils as well as essential oils can easily be done with refractive index measurement. Anton Paar refractometers are in compliance with international regulations such as ISO, AOAC and international pharmacopoeias and offer a refractive index scale and a butyro scale reading.

Along with carbohydrates and proteins, fats and oils belong to the basic building blocks of human nutrition.
