Fighting Food Fraud with FT-NIR Spectroscopy Maintaining brand reputation and product quality has led to increased focus on qualifying raw materials and ingredients used in food production. In addition to traditional quality parameters, the detection of adulterants plays a critical role in ensuring food safety and quality. FT-NIR offers a valuable tool for screening almost any raw material with an unrivaled ease-of-use. The high information content of NIR spectra provides a fi nger print of the complete sample. With the measurement of a single spectrum the sample can be evaluated in a three-step process: Identification: The right material? Conformity: The optimum quality? Quantification: The correct composition? Bruker Optics powerful software combines these individual evaluations to a single routine with a simple output: Green check mark if all analyses are OK, red cross if the sample has failed the specifications.
