While at the FoodIntegrity conference New Food hosted a live roundtable event about the gaps in current research in regards to food authenticity and its impact on the supply chain.
Keynote speakers from the conference acted as participants, and many interesting points were raised, such as application of testing, food fraud, database development and emerging technologies.
Webinar: eBook: Thermo Fisher Scientific Food Integrity Collection 2017
Over the course of the year Thermo Fisher Scientific have provided expert comment on a whole swathe of issues including food fraud, origin testing and labelling regulations. This collection also provides access to Thermo Fisher’s Food Authenticity webinar series for 2017, where experts delve into olive oil characterisation, gelatin speciation, honey and chromatography, and more.
Participants were asked five questions:
App note: HPAE-PAD determination of carbohydrates in honey to evaluate samples for quality and adulteration
High Performance Anion Exchange chromatography coupled with Pulsed Amperometric Detection (HPAE-PAD) is one of the most useful techniques for carbohydrate determinations. This application note demonstrates a method to assay fructose and glucose, plus the entire profile of di- and trisaccharides in honey.
- Application of testing within risk mitigation strategies: how much testing is enough?
- What are the scientific challenges in moving from targeted to non-targeted methods for food fraud testing and how can they be addressed?
- Database development, use and curation. What can be done to ensure databases are reliable?
- Are there any technologies from other sectors that could be used in the food sector?
- How can technologies such as NGS, REIMS and NMR, and other emerging technologies be used and applied to tackle future food fraud issues? Can this be done in a cost effective manner?
