AMAC Food safety inspection process and precautions:         


Amount of sample and packaging

For lots of 5 to 50 tons, three samples, 300 grams each, to analyze are required. Samples to analyze should be taken randomly from the composite sample and put in separate bags. For lots of 50 to 200 tons, six samples to analyze are required. For lots of 200 to 500 tons, twelve samples to analyze are required.
In packaging the samples, care must be taken to avoid contact of moisture. The inner bag should be sheeted with moisture absorbing paper towel to avoid potential water condensation, due to temperature variation during transportation, from evaporated moisture content of the sample itself, which tends to increase local humidity and aids molding. The middle layer should keep in a zipper plastic bag to protect the sample from possible outside water penetration during transportation. The outer layer is a paper envelope printed with mailing information and registration number.
AMAC will need at least 100 grams for each sample.
