Dear Food Scientist, Food Fraud is a topic of rising concern, both for the food industry and for consumers, as well as for regulatory bodies. However, for most food products, methods for the chemical analysis for food fraud are lacking. For some well known products, such as honey, olive oil and wine, methods are offered by laboratories routinely. For other products, these methods are not available. At Ciboris, we have tested fingerprinting techniques for the detection of food fraud. These analyses allow for a classification of samples for example, by origin or by level of adulteration. These techniques can also be used as a quality control. In this webinar, we will discuss this approach and show our results in oregano, a herb that is very sensitive to adulteration. Please join us for two presentations and a Q&A session afterwards.
