Analyzing Olive Oil with NMR

Analyzing Olive Oil with NMR

Webinar Overview

In this webinar, George Siragakis from Food Allergens Lab, will talk about his experience with the Olive Oil Profiling 2.0 method based on the Fourier 80 benchtop system.

With NMR profiling, a fingerprint of the olive oil sample is acquired, and many parameters are analyzed simultaneously. The approaches applied for verification of country of origin, verification of Extra Virgin quality grade, Quantitative analysis of EU-regulated and IOC parameters and the detection of atypical profiles will be explained.
