Food adulteration and authenticity testing solutions

Food Authenticity

 

Testing food and feed authenticity for consumer and public health protection. In today's global economy, a food product or its ingredients may be sourced from a single farm or from producers and manufacturers worldwide. Truth-in-labelling regulations exist to verify the authenticity and origins of these products as they are exported around the globe. However, recurring food contamination scandals show that there is always room for error, if not intentional adulteration or counterfeiting.

 

Our scientists are constantly developing technologies for testing the authenticity of foods and feeds to protect consumer interests and public health.

 

Adulteration

In recent years adulteration has become an increasing problem globally in the food industry and for consumers. Determining if the product has been adulterated is important for many reasons. Is the product pure; does it contain any contaminants; has it been adulterated in any way for economic reasons? Thermo Fisher Scientific has advanced instrumentation that can help in the area of food adulteration to determine the known and unknown contaminants of the food and beverage product.

Isotope Fingerprints

Investigating Authenticity and Tracing Origin with Isotope Fingerprints
Food and beverage products have a fingerprint, a unique chemical signature that allows the product to be identified. The isotope fingerprint in food and beverage products is region or process specific, which means that products can be differentiated based on geographical region (cheese, coffee, sugar, fish and animal feeding areas), botanical processes (beans, seeds, olive oil, vanilla), soil and fertilisation processes (fruits and vegetables) and fraudulent practices (sugar addition to honey, watering of wines and spirits).

IRMS

Gas Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (IRMS)
Samples have an isotope fingerprint, a unique chemical signature that allows their history to be identified. To visualise this fingerprint, isotope ratio mass spectrometry is used. IRMS traces carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and hydrogen isotopes by detecting their natural variations, revealing the origin and history of samples.

Viscometers & Rheometers
Rheological characteristics and viscosity are valuable physical characteristics for beverage products. These characteristics are associated with pour ability, performance in dipping / coating operation, or the ease with which it may be handled, processed, or used an often associated with perceived product quality. The interrelation between rheology and viscosity and other product dimensions often makes the measurement of viscosity the most sensitive or convenient way of detecting changes in density, stability, solids content, and composition. Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a range of benchtop and field deployable Viscometers and Rheometers to meet your application.

Food Contamination Analysis

Food Contamination Analysis
Food is a primary conduit for contaminants to enter human the human body, which has led regulators are becoming stricter in a effort to protect consumers. Manufacturers now need to monitor levels of hazardous componets in food, which has driven an industry-wide demand for fast, sensitive, reliable and cost-effective testing methods for high-throughput analysis of food that can identify a range of residues associated with food production.

Food Authenticity and Labelling

Food Authenticity and Labelling
In today's global economy, a food product or its ingredients may be sourced from a single farm or from producers and manufacturers worldwide. Truth-in-labelling regulations exist to verify the authenticity and origins of these products as they are exported around the globe. However, recurring food contamination scandals show that there is always room for error, if not intentional adulteration or counterfeiting.

Food Origin Testing

In today's global economy, a food product or its ingredients may be sourced from a single farm or from producers and manufacturers worldwide. Truth-in-labelling regulations exist to verify the authenticity and origins of these products as they are exported around the globe. However, recurring food contamination scandals show that there is always room for error, if not intentional adulteration or counterfeiting.

 

Our scientists are constantly developing technologies for testing the authenticity of foods and feeds to protect consumer interests and public health.Legislation has been enacted globally to protect food and beverage products with respect to production processes and product labelling, either at the country level or cross-country level, such as in the European Union. For example, certifications on production practice and geographical origin add value to products, such as Protected Designation of Origin (PDO), Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) and Traditional Specialty Designation (TSG). The combination of legislation and food fraud practices demands a reliable analytical technique that can verifies the origin, authenticity and label claims of food and beverage products.

 

Isotope Fingerprints

Investigating Authenticity and Tracing Origin with Isotope Fingerprints
Food and beverage products have a fingerprint, a unique chemical signature that allows the product to be identified. The isotope fingerprint in food and beverage products is region or process specific, which means that products can be differentiated based on geographical region (cheese, coffee, sugar, fish and animal feeding areas), botanical processes (beans, seeds, olive oil, vanilla), soil and fertilisation processes (fruits and vegetables) and fraudulent practices (sugar addition to honey, watering of wines and spirits).

IRMS

Gas Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (IRMS)
Samples have an isotope fingerprint, a unique chemical signature that allows their history to be identified. To visualise this fingerprint, isotope ratio mass spectrometry is used. IRMS traces carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and hydrogen isotopes by detecting their natural variations, revealing the origin and history of samples.

GMO

GMO

On-going public demand for more information about food safety, authenticity and origins continues to drive tighter regulations around the use, supply and labelling of specific foods and ingredients. In many countries food manufacturers must provide clear labelling when specific ingredients are present including certain allergenic materials and genetically modified organisms (GMO). The need for reliable and affordable tests to enable accurate analysis and provision of information has never been greater.
