Screening for Adulteration of Milk Using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy
FOSS will present at the the AOAC Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida, 26-29th September on the potential of Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy to detect unknown adulterants in milk.
FT-IR technology rapidly generates a unique spectrum of the milk sample based on all organic constituents. This offers significant advantages for routine screening of milk integrity. Of particular interest is the ability of the technology to detect unknown adulterants, thereby allowing a proactive defence against food adulteration for economic gain.
The presentation will be made by Per Waaben Hansen, FOSS Analytical A/S, Denmark, in collaboration with Marlene Ransborg Pedersen, Arla Foods Ingredients R&D, Denmark and Steve Holroyd, Fonterra Research Centre, New Zealand.
