Using NMR for brand protection and ensuring supply chain integrity of wine
There is increasing global demand to establish the authenticity of food products by demonstrating an unbroken supply chain from the source through to the final consumers.
Assuring authenticity and integrity of wines protects the brand of a wine manufacturer or distributor, along with reputations of wine regions or appellations for wine growers and associations.
With the advent of new tools such as NMR, the gap in supply chains can be filled in to complete the chain of authenticity.
By working directly with growers and producers in the US wine industry, ETS and Bruker have engaged in a collaboration to build the database of American wines for origin and grape variety of US wines.
In this webinar, Gordon Burns, President of ETS Laboratories, begins by introducing the application of Proton NMR, a direct and highly reproducible technique for wine analysis.
The spectra, or digital signature, contains hundreds of signals that provides information about the composition of wine. The spectra combined with statistics allows the creation of robust databases, providing a reference for the contents, varietal, and region of production of wine.
Verification creates trust: Gordon also explains explain how the Wine-Profiling 4.0 method is used in a daily routine to test wines and safeguard their value.
NMR helps address the demand from global wine consumers for reassurance of the origin and integrity of what they buy. The consumer’s appetite for proof extends from the vineyard throughout the supply chain to the point of sale.
What to expect
Attendees can expect a brief history of ETS and their collaboration with Bruker. How the NMR as a technique provides value for the wine industry for addressing the needs for brand protection and supply chain integrity.
Gordon Burns explains how ETS is using NMR and the Wine-Profiling 4.0 application to track and authenticate wines, as they travel from the vineyard, through the global supply chain and all the way to the consumer’s glass.
