Plant-Based Food Revolution: leveraging ICP-MS for quality assurance and nutritional insights

Join us for a webinar that delves into the crucial aspects of plant-based foods – their nutritional composition, safety, and the innovative technology that enables accurate analysis. As the demand for plant-based foods continues to surge, ensuring their nutritional excellence and safety is paramount.

In this on demand webinar, we explored the world of plant-based foods and the challenges associated with their analysis of nutritional content for safety. From addressing rising concerns about animal cruelty to promoting environmental sustainability and enhanced health benefits, the momentum behind plant-based diets is undeniable. However, with these benefits come responsibilities to accurately assess nutritional and toxic elements to meet regulatory standards.

Our expert panel will guide you through the application of ICP-MS for plant-based foods. Uncover the NexION 2200 ICP-MS system, a cutting-edge technology designed to analyse a wide range of elemental concentrations, from parts per million (ppm) to parts per trillion (ppt) levels.

  • Understand the challenges surrounding accurate nutritional labelling and safety assessment in the plant-based food industry.
  • Discover how ICP-MS plays a pivotal role in monitoring nutritional and toxic elements in plant-based raw materials and finished products.
  • Learn about the latest advancements in elemental analysis technology and its applications in ensuring compliance with quality control criteria and regulatory standards.

Uncover the benefits of the NexION 2200, the latest ICP-MS analysis technology on the market
