QIB Extra's New Rapid Method for Coffee Authentication


  29/06/2018 11:33:45

Based on detection of 16-O-methylcafestol, or 16-OMC, in coffee via benchtop NMR, this new analytical service reduces the analysis time from 3 days (current standard analytical technique) to 40 minutes and is not only a more rapid but also cost-effective alternative. With a detection limit of 2%, it also has the required sensitivity and can provide quantification of the levels of 16-OMC detected.

New test to combat buffalo mozzarella fraud uncovers mislabelled products

05/03/2019

Scientists from the Quadram Institute on the Norwich Research Park have developed a test that differentiates between buffalo and cow’s milk, and between the cheeses made from them. Applying the test to commercial products, they found that many restaurant meals and supermarket pizzas claiming to be buffalo mozzarella are mislabelled, and instead contain mozzarella made wholly or partially from cows’ milk.
