The Significance of Pesticide Residue Analysis to the Food Processing and Packaging Industry

Generally, pesticide residue refers to the various pesticides that remain on agricultural food products, including insecticides, rodenticides, herbicides, etc. Often, there are acceptable levels of pesticide residue in such food crops. However, there are stringent measures and regulations in food products production, distribution and consumption. Pesticide residue analysis is an extremely specialised field of analytical chemistry, a critical element in determining food product safety. This process offers numerous advantages, including the following.
