Fighting Food Fraud

Bruker Optics

Maintaining brand reputation and product quality has led to increased focus on qualifying raw materials and ingredients used in food production. In addition to traditional quality parameters like moisture, fat, and protein, detection of adulterants plays a critical role in ensuring food safety and quality. The USP (US Pharmacopeial Convention) Food Fraud Database currently lists hundreds of incidents of economically motivated adulteration (EMA), substitution, counterfeiting or mislabeling of food products, such as olive oil and milk powder and some prominent adulterants e.g. melamine.

Analysis of Fish Oil with FT-NIR Spectroscopy

Bruker Optics

Marine oils are the main source of polyunsaturated Omega-3 fatty acids. Especially EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) are known to be highly beneficial to human health. Since the body is not able to produce Omega-3 fatty acids on its own, it is essential to supplement our diet with DHA, EPA and other valuable unsaturated fatty acids.

FT-NIR Spectroscopy for the Sugar Industry

Bruker Optics

Producing sugar from sugar cane or beet is a process with multiple steps from the crop to the final product, like clarifying, crystallization and refining. Along the complete production chain a tight quality control is important to ensure optimized yield and quality. FT-NIR offers a fast and effective tool for controlling the critical QC parameters in all steps of processing cane, raw sugar, different types of juices, molasses, syrups and crystal sugar products. Even the products and by-products of the downstream production process, e.g. alcohols and bagasse, can be monitored.

Iodine Value NIR Analysis

Bruker Optics

Iodine value (IV) is a measure of the total number of unsaturated double bonds present in fats and oils. It is generally expressed in terms of “number of grams of iodine that will react with the double bonds in 100 grams of fats or oils”. A high IV oil contains a greater number of double bonds than a low IV oil. Fats with high iodine value are usually soft or liquid and are less stable to oxidation.

Identification of Yeast & Bacteria in Food Microbiology

Bruker Optics

Microorganisms are not only essential for the production of food like dairy products, bread, beer and wine but they play also a major role in modern industrial processes such as the fermentation of enzymes, pigments, antioxidants etc. and increase the digestibility and stability of food. However microorganisms can cause serious problems in the production process like spoilage or even poisoning. An effective microbial quality management is essential for the safety of the product. The reliable identification of microorganisms allows to optimize production processes and to track down sources of contaminations.

Quality Control of Meat Products and Sausages

Bruker Optics

Meat comes - like all natural materials - in a wide range of compositional properties. For the meat industry it is essential to know the composition of raw meat and other ingredients in order to adapt the recipes for a high quality production of sausages, salami or other types of meat products. In addition, the testing of the finished meat products before delivery to the end customer is a crucial step for consumer satisfaction.
