  • Covers history of food fraud and the modern analytical tools to detect food fraud primarily using different spectroscopy instruments from IR to NMR with case studies (i.e. horse meat scandal – testing for linolenic acid – add pulp wash to orange juice, mislabelled virgin olive oil, etc). More on the chemistry side but interesting to illustrate how instrumentation can be done to detect species vs. conventional DNA fingerprinting.
