Dear Quality Expert,

As your reliable source for training Ciboris is offering you a free webinar on methodologies to combat food fraud in fruit and fruit juices. SGF International e.V. and Ciboris are collaborating to tackle one of the more difficult cases in fruit juice authentication: detection of peach puree in apricot puree. This adulteration with a biologically similar product is hard to uncover.

Please join us for two presentations and a Q&A session afterwards.

SPEAKERS

The Voluntary Control System, a driver for analytical innovation

 

Dr. Peter Rinke
SGF International e.V., Head of R&D

SGF international e.V. is an independent non-profit organization that has been supporting the fruit juice industry in quality and authenticity control for almost 50 years.

The Voluntary Control System, database applications and selected analytical developments are presented.

 

Detection of peach puree in apricot puree: using unidentified markers in LC-HRMS

 

Dr. Bram Miserez
Ciboris, Business Development and Innovation Manager

Ciboris is a non-profit organization that specializes in advice and research for the food industry. Due to the increased attention in food fraud, Ciboris is running multiple food fraud research projects. In this presentation we will discuss a case from the fruit juice industry: the detection of adulteration of apricot puree with peach puree. As peach puree is biologically very similar, this is hard to detect by conventional methods. Here we use High Resolution Mass Spectrometry to find possible marker molecules for the presence of peach puree in apricot puree. A routine method was developed and adulteration as low as 5% could be routinely detected.
