Peroxide Value

A common test for oils, the Peroxide value of a product is an indicator to the potential shelf life of the product. The peroxide value is the amount of peroxide oxygen per 1 kilogram of fat or oil. The peroxide value increases as the oil is oxidized, eventually developing a rancid taste. Peroxide Value is often used as a measure of rancidity in this way. Accelerated Cannabis Laboratories can help certify each batch of your product to ensure the highest levels of quality and consistency.
