The Science of Food Profiling: Determining the Adulteration, Authenticity and Origin of Foods With reports of 5 to 10% of global food trade involving counterfeit goods, regulatory agencies and food manufacturers are compelled to employ programs that help ensure consumer safety, protect trade markets, maintain product quality and preserve brand image. This webinar will demonstrate how the latest analytical instrumentation and data analysis software can assist food testing laboratories in the determination of food adulteration, authenticity and origin. • Liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry are key analytical technologies for food profiling. The application and advantages of these techniques will be discussed. • Employing chemometrics software for automated data analyses can yield critical information for food testing laboratories. The approach facilitates the identification of differences or similarities between brands or manufacturing batches. This methodology will be examined. • Examples of edible oil, tea and fruit juice food profiling applications will be shown.
