ABSTRACT

The incidents of food fraud continue to rise as the expertise in mimicking foods increases. To combat this, quality programs are adding better analytical tools to their toolboxes to evaluate both known and unknown adulterating agents, these approaches being Targeted Analyses and Non-Targeted Analyses. How to choose what tools to use is key. Presented here are examples of how these tools perform and how AOAC International is identifying gaps in the toolbox and how to assess what tools work.
