“Measuring ingredients in beverages safely and within a few minutes”
DIS Sittard puts Quantos advanced measuring device into use.
Recently, DIS Sittard was the first to purchase a QUANTOS from the German company Q-FOOD GmbH. This device measures the various contents of sugars, sorbic acid, benzoic acid, alcohol, taurine, caffeine, citric acid, phosphoric acid and acesulfame-K within a few minutes. This is a great advantage for our clients, who have to wait days and sometimes weeks until results come in from external labs.
This equipment can easily determine the methanol content in alcoholic mixes and the sugar and alcohol content in Radler beers. The QUANTOS is a measuring device that was developed by Q-FOOD GmbH in Freiburg (Germany). By means of the QUANTOS, a mid-infrared FTIR spectrometer can measure several parameters of energy drinks, soft drinks and beers within a few minutes with an accuracy of 1 ppm (parts per million).
By deploying the QUANTOS, DIS can respond better to any changes in legislation governing taurine and methanol, the evidence of sweeteners, the absence of sugars and the burden of proof for Halal.
