What does this abbreviation stand for???

Text about milk analysis

Un de ces échantillons sera mis à disposition du fournisseur ou à sa demande, au laboratoire interprofessionnel du secteur, pour analyse MG, MP,EST.

Dès la connaissance des résultats MG, MP, EST, le fournisseur et le réceptionnaire s’échangeront leurs informations afin de convenir des quantités réceptionnées.

MG = matière grasse
MP = matière protéique

For EST the only thing I can find sort of in this context is "encéphalopathie spongiforme transmissible", but I think the EST probably stands for some nutritional component and not a disease component
