Food Analysis

Food analysis is becoming ever more complex. New EU regulation on the provision of food information to consumers as well as food safety monitoring and quality control requirements are the driving forces. Old techniques are being substituted by new, exciting and faster methods. Ultimately, however, the objective has remained the same: to shed light on ingredients, additives and contaminants to enhance the safety of food products.

  • Fingerprint spectroscopy within a millisecond

    To guarantee high quality pharmaceuticals, manufacturers need not only to control the purity and concentration of their own products, but also those of their suppliers. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF have developed a measuring system capable of identifyin more

  • Wine Fraud: Chemical Fingerprint Uncorks Juicy Facts

    Numerous components of 42 different wines have been analysed using state-of-the-art equipment for the first time. The data generated will provide an extremely accurate basis for definitively characterising different wine varieties, as well as an innovative approach for routine wine analysis. The met more

  • Pocket-size food scanner

Ultrafast Fat Analyzer for All Foods

Process and laboratory staff in the food industry are increasingly pressed for time. The fat content of ever more samples must be determined fast and accurately. Until recently, there was no reliable method to determine the fat content in different foods in less than 30 seconds. One method is to use more

Finally, Safe and Simple Acid Hydrolysis for Determining the Total Fat of Nearly Any Sample

In many sample types, the fat is not freely accessible to the solvent and it cannot be extracted in full. In milk, for example, the majority of the fat is surrounded by membrane and in oil seeds it is surrounded by cell walls. The bonding of fats in starch-lipid complexes or to lipoproteins or phos more

q&more articles Food Analytics

  • What Are We Eating?

    What ends up on our plates? We used to think we knew – until we were disabused of this notion in early 2013. Instead of beef, there had been large-scale use of processed horsemeat, especially in frozen products and mincemeat. Although this posed no hazard to health, the damage was enormous, since many products had to be taken off supermarket shelves. more

  • More than honey?

    For thousands of years, the word “honey” has been synonymous with an all-natural, healthy food. Unsurprisingly, honey has also enjoyed unwavering popularity with consumers – and especially in times when organic food and a healthy lifestyle are more in vogue than ever before. more

  • A Complex Mixture

    Once only of academic interest, the combination of liquid chromatographic separation with subsequent separation in the gas-phase is proving to be suitable for routine use. In routine laboratory work, the method continues to present a major challenge, above all with regard to precision, repeatability and robustness. A sophisticated coupling of methods can offer decisive advantages, through a greater degree of automation. more
