Laboratory of Quality Vegetable Raw Materials

Currently food industry, which is closely related to agriculture, has a modern production infrastructure and introduces innovative production technologies. To guarantee safety and good quality foodstuffs it is necessary to provide production enterprises with proper raw materials.

Research  topics:

  • Investigation of plant raw materials chemical composition using non-destructive analytical methods;
  • Evaluation of chemical composition of plant raw materials during maturation and postharvest storage;
  • Storage of plant raw materials in modified atmosphere;
  • Sensory analysis of food materials and products;
  • Testing of harmful organisms biology, ecology, physiology, toxicology in controlled environment;
  • Evaluation of bee races DNA, maternal pheromone and analysis of bee products quality;
  • Determination of mycotoxins, heavy metals and pesticide residues in agricultural products.
