The DLG testing methods are based on current scientific findings regarding quality assurance in the different food sectors.
Focal areas of testing: sensory tests, laboratory analyses, packaging and labelling tests
The DLG-Quality Tests are organized by the Certification Unit at DLG e.V. The Unit is accredited in accordance with DIN EN 45.011 for certifying foods and in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17024 for certifying sensory assessors. The Quality Tests are designed specifically for the respective product group. At the heart of the tests for all product groups is the sensory analysis of the foods and beverages (colour, appearance, consistency, odour and taste). Depending on the specific product group, these analyses are supplemented by testing of preparation, checking of the packaging and labelling, and chemical, microbiological and physical analyses in accredited laboratories.
