Ciboris webinar on 16 December: Food fraud detection by fingerprinting and an example in spices and herbs

Food Fraud is a topic of rising concern, both for the food industry and for consumers, as well as for regulatory bodies. However, for most food products, methods for the chemical analysis for food fraud are lacking. Ciboris has tested fingerprinting techniques for the detection of food fraud.  In this webinar, we will discuss this approach and show our results in oregano, a herb that is very sensitive to adulteration.
