PerkinElmer's DairyGuard Milk Powder Analyzer Wins Innovation Award from Institute of Food Technologists
WHAT: PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader focused on the health and safety of people and the environment, today announced that its DairyGuard Milk Powder Analyzer received an Innovation Award from the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) at the 2014 IFT Food Expo in New Orleans.

The DairyGuard™ solution, an analyzer based on a near infrared (NIR) spectrometer specifically developed for food suppliers and manufacturers, is the only system available that tests for unknown adulterants, as well as nutritional parameters, such as protein, moisture and fat content. Combined with fast sampling times that yield real-time results, DairyGuard provides heightened protection from supply chain risks to the safety and quality of milk powder.

"As the supply chain becomes more complex and the liability for potential recalls remains a critical industry issue, food producers and regulatory bodies are continuously testing for unknown adulterants to help ensure product consistency and safety," said Jon DiVincenzo, President, Environmental Health, PerkinElmer. "Our DairyGuard solution provides food suppliers with confidence that the food they are delivering to consumers contains only safe ingredients." The 2014 IFT Food Expo Innovation Awards program is designed to honor outstanding innovation in products, ingredients, applications, instruments, equipment, technology, and services. A panel of 10 jurors from industry, academia, and government with expertise in ingredients, product development, processing and packaging technology, and food safety selected the honorees.
