Providing Peace of Mind: Ultra Low-Level Detection of Pesticides in Baby Food

Providing Peace of Mind: Ultra Low-Level Detection of Pesticides in Baby Food

Blog

Pesticides are widely used to protect food crops from damage and consequently have the potential to end up in the food we eat. Young children and babies can be particularly susceptible to pesticide residues in food so testing for pesticide residues in food, and baby food in particular, is therefore critical for the preservation of human health.
