Analysis of
Pesticides, PAH

Pesticides such as glyphosate, are commonly used as plant protection products in Germany and abroad. However, their use can lead to residues in food and feed. To protect the health of humans and animals, they are legally regulated and certain maximum residue levels must not be exceeded. Comprehensive testing is essential to guarantee consumers safe and healthy food.
