The sanitary safety laboratory - Institutionnel
The sanitary safety laboratory
This unit has four members and seeks to innovate and generate value in the crushing process (the first step in seed transformation), through the valorization of proteins in particular. It is supported by a pilot unit, in partnership with Iterg.
It works principally in the domain of the sanitary safety of oil and protein crops, a strategic activity in this sector. It is thus able to identify the sectors in which the risk of contamination is high, enabling public authorities to act to prevent health crises.
The Pessac site also provides the seed primary processing industry with support, by performing a survey of the quality of the cakes produced in France. It also works on the nutritional value of seeds and cakes, by performing tests on animals.
