The determination of food authenticity is a vital component of quality control. Its importance has been highlighted in recent years by high-profile cases in the global supply chain such as the European horsemeat and the Chinese melamine scandals, the latter of which led to six fatalities and the hospitalization of thousands of infants. As well as being a safety concern, authenticity is also a quality criterion for food and food ingredients. Consumers and retailers demand that the products they purchase and sell are what they purport to be. This book covers the most advanced techniques used for the authentication of a vast number of products around the world. The reader will be informed about the latest pertinent analytical techniques. Chapters focus on the novel techniques and markers that have emerged in recent years. An introductory section presents the concepts of food authentication, while the second section examines in detail the analytical techniques for the detection of fraud relating to geographical, botanical, species, and processing origin and production methods of food materials and ingredients. Finally, the third section looks at consumer attitudes towards food authenticity, the application of bioinformatics to this field, and the Editor's conclusions and future outlook. Beyond being a reference for researchers working in food authentication, this book will serve as an essential resource for analytical scientists interested in the field and food scientists aiming to appreciate analytical approaches. This book will be a companion to under- and postgraduate students in their studies in food authentication, and will be useful to researchers in universities and research institutions.

Multiple factors can directly influence the chemical composition of foods and, consequently, their organoleptic, nutritional, and bioactive properties, including their geographical origin, the variety or breed, as well as the conditions of cultivation, breeding, and/or feeding, among others. Therefore, there is a great interest in the development of accurate, robust, and high-throughput analytical methods to guarantee the authenticity and traceability of foods. For these purposes, a large number of sensorial, physical, and chemical approaches can be used, which must be normally combined with advanced statistical tools. In this vein, the aim of the Special Issue “Food Authentication: Techniques, Trends, and Emerging Approaches” is to gather original research papers and review articles focused on the development and application of analytical techniques and emerging approaches in food authentication. This Special Issue comprises 12 valuable scientific contributions, including one review article and 11 original research works, dealing with the authentication of foods with great commercial value, such as olive oil, Iberian ham, and fruits, among others.

Consumers have the right to know what is in the food they are eating, and accordingly, a number of global food regulations require that the provenance of the food can be guaranteed from farm to fork. Many different instrumental techniques have been proposed for food authentication. Although traditional methods are still being used, new approaches such as genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics are helping to complement existing methodologies for verifying the claims made about certain food products. During the last decade, proteomics (the largescale analysis of proteins in a particular biological system at a particular time) has been applied to different research areas within food technology. Since proteins can be used as markers for many properties of a food, even indicating processes to which the food has been subjected, they can provide further evidence of the foods labeling claim. Proteomics for Food Authentication, a volume in the Food Analysis and Properties Series, is a comprehensive and updated overview of the applications, drawbacks, advantages, and challenges of proteomics for food authentication. Features: Provides a comprehensive and critical overview of the application of proteomics in food Helps food scientists determine the authenticity of several food products Provides applied techniques for both laboratory and industrial environments Describes workflows, technologies, and tools that are being assessed in proteomics-related studies Workflows, technologies, and tools that are being assessed in proteomics-related studies are described, followed by a review of the specific applications regarding food authenticity and, now and then, food quality. The book will provide a comprehensive and critical overview of the application of proteomics approaches to determine the authenticity of several food products updating the performances and current limitations of the applied techniques in both laboratory and industrial environments. As such it is well suited to food scientist, chemical engineers, food engineers, research labs, universities, governments, related food industries.

There is an increasing interest by consumers for high-quality food products with a clear geographical origin. With these products in demand, suitable analytical techniques are needed for the quality control. Current analytical approaches are mass spectrometry techniques, spectroscopic techniques, separation techniques, and others. Fingerprinting Techniques in Food Authentication and Traceability discusses the principles of the techniques together with their advantages and drawbacks, and reported applications concerning geographical authenticity. A combination of methods analyzing different types of food compounds seems to be the most promising approach to establish the geographical origin. The abundant acquired data are analyzed by chemometrics. Producing safe and high-quality food is a prerequisite to ensure consumer health and successful domestic and international trade, and is critical to the sustainable development of national agricultural resources. Systems to trace food or feed products through specified stages of production, processing, and distribution play a key role in assuring food safety. Analytical techniques that enable the provenance of food to be determined provide an independent means of verifying traceability systems and also help to prove product authenticity, to combat fraudulent practices and to control adulteration, which are important issues for economic, religious, or cultural reasons. Proof of provenance has become an important topic in the context of food safety, food quality, and consumer protection in accordance with national legislation and international standards and guidelines.

Given the inherent complexity of food products, most instrumental techniques employed for quality and authenticity evaluation (e.g., chromatographic methods) are time demanding, expensive, and involve a considerable amount of manual labor. Therefore, there has been an increasing interest in simpler, faster, and reliable analytical methods for assessing food quality attributes. Spectroscopic Methods in Food Analysis presents the basic concepts of spectroscopic methods, together with a discussion on the most important applications in food analysis. The determination of product quality and authenticity and the detection of adulteration are major issues in the food industry, causing concern among consumers and special attention among food manufacturers. As such, this book explains why spectroscopic methods have been extensively employed to the analysis of food products as they often require minimal or no sample preparation, provide rapid and on-line analysis, and have the potential to run multiple tests on a single sample (i.e., non-destructive). This book consists of concepts related to food quality and authenticity, that are quite broad, given the different demands of the manufacturer, the consumer, the surveillance and the legislative bodies that ultimately provide healthy and safe products.

Diese Dissertation beschäftigt sich mit drei herausfordernden Aspekten bei der Authentifizierung von Beerenfrüchten in Bezug auf das Profil sekundärer Pflanzenstoffe. Zunächst wurden die Einflüsse von verschiedenen Extraktionsmethoden auf das quantitative Profil von Anthocyanen, welche zu den charakteristischen sekundären Pflanzenstoffen von Beerenfrüchten zählen, untersucht. Die Wahl verschiedener Extraktionsmittel und Techniken führte zu unterschiedlichen Veränderungen der natürlichen Anthocyanverhältnisse. Weiterhin wurde der Einfluss von Enzympräparaten auf das Anthocyanprofil während der Saftherstellung untersucht. Auch hier zeigten die Anthocyanprofile unterschiedliche Veränderungen abhängig von den eingesetzten Enzymen. Abschließend wurde das Wissen um das phytochemische Profil einiger Vaccinium L. Spezies erweitert, indem in diesen Früchten bislang unbekannte Iridoide charakterisiert wurden.
