Food fingerprinting as a tool to control food authenticity

The CRA-W has recently participated to a research project entitled ‘VOLATOLOMICS'

This project is focused on the detection of various types of food fraud in food products.

Other partners in the project were Ciboris (part of Primoris Holding), Ghent University and ML2Grow (company for advanced machine learning).

The main task of the CRA-W in such project was the development and application of vibrational spectroscopy techniques (Near Infrared, Mid-Infrared and Hyperspectral Imaging) for the authenticity of oregano and rice in terms of adulteration, batch control and origin determination.
