Over the past few years, there has been a steady increase in consumer interest in the reliability of food product labelling. This interest extends from food available at global retail outlets (e.g., supermarkets) through to local food markets. The European Union’s Database of Origin and Registration (DOOR), containing more than 1500 entries, lists all controlled food products produced in the European Union with their protected geographical origin and traditional production method. Analytical methods for testing and controlling food authenticity are, therefore, needed and metabolic food profiling is one of the possible approaches to master this very complex topic. Using a database associated with a chemometric model it is possible to identify a specific food type (e.g., variety) in a routine manner.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss developing methods to protect high value food products from fraudulent intentions, using an LC/Q-TOF and MassHunter profiling software.

What is covered?

  • An introduction to the novel Agilent SWARM Auto-tune for LC/Q-TOF

  • Requirements to perform robust and reliable food authenticity metabolic profiling, and the quality procedures to assure that these requirements are always in place.

  • Preliminary design of a food authenticity experiment and which influencing factors should be carefully considered.

By viewing this webinar you will learn:

  • the advantages and performance of the Agilent 6545 Accurate-Mass Q-TOF LC/MS system under real working conditions

  • why food authenticity is an emerging topic, which will grow in significance over coming years, and why every food testing laboratory should be concerned about it

  • how to design food authenticity experiments
