Food Authentication

Food Authentication

Food fraud is committed when food is deliberately placed on the market, for financial gain, with the intention of deceiving the consumer.

Being sure that your products meet identity standards is an essential part of protecting brand reliability, protecting your reputation and increasing consumer confidence.

We provide a wide range of food speciation services by using state of the art genetic testing technologies for both qualitative (is it really what it is said to be?) and quantitative (has there been mixing or adulteration?) questions.

We are able to assist with herb and spice authentication via use of DNA technology and indeed, can test for the presence of particular plant ingredients if ingredient adulteration is suspected. 

If you have a food or ingredient authentication issue and you think DNA testing might help, then please call or e-mail us now.  Trade (B2B) enquiries are welcome and we will be pleased to help you set up an account and make our trade discounts available to you.
