Analysis Techniques for Food Authenticity and Safety

Food and feed authenticity and safety is a persistent issue, with its significance increasing as sourcing strategies and global trading routes become more complex. The results of food fraud range from the deception of end customers, mislabeling, lower product quality, food imitation, economic losses, and religious and ethical concerns to medical issues for the end user.Image Credit: Analytik Jena US

To protect consumers, food authenticity is tested concerning the claimed origin, properties, production, and purity. The techniques currently used for authentication include molecular biology, physical-chemical methods, substance profiling, and isotope analysis. These approaches can confirm species and GMO content.
