Product quality begins with the raw material

At IREKS, all raw materials are subjected to intense controls. Our ultra trace analysis laboratory enables us to detect even the smallest residues of heavy metals and pesticides.

Only those who use the best raw materials for their products are able to manufacture first-class baking ingredients. For this reason, the quality and safety of all the components used at IREKS are extremely important to us.

All raw materials are subjected to an intense and systematic quality control in our laboratory. The same strict criteria apply to raw materials we produce ourselves.

To satisfy this demand, IREKS operates food laboratories at worldwide locations, the one at our headquarters in Kulmbach is special, though:

It's our ultra trace analysis laboratory. The technical equipment and its capabilities go much further than what is prescribed by law and the common standard within the sector. Equipped with all the most modern apparatus and measuring procedures, it provides a highly sensitive monitoring possibility for all raw materials. They are checked for minute levels of heavy metal and pesticides – down to 1 gram in 1.000.000 tons of the raw material.

This enables us to select raw materials even more carefully and use natural products of the highest purity – so that IREKS customers can be absolutely confident about our products.
