CHOLESTEROL | egg DEFINITION AND SCOPE OF THE TEST The average content of cholesterol in eggs is constant. Therefore it is possible to use this test to determine the amount of eggs contained in a specific food preparation. The possibility of performing quick and simple tests enables manufacturers to directly change the processing parameters in real time. TEST PRINCIPLE If placed in contact with specific enzymes, cholesterol reacts with a phenol derivative forming a red compound with an intensity that is directly proportional to the concentration of cholesterol in the sample, if measured at 505 nm. CDR’s innovative method is simple, fast and uses micro-sample.
