Origin and authenticity of food products is gaining in popularity, with consumers demanding more information about the purity, quality, and origin of the food products they buy. 

Addressing these needs, Bruker has developed the Olive Oil-Profiling™ 2.0 solution for the authenticity and quality analysis of olive oil. The method, offered on the well-established FoodScreener and the cryogen-free Fourier 80 benchtop system platforms, addresses the different requirements of the olive oil industry, private testing laboratories and government laboratories.

In this webinar, Professor Fanizzi will talk about his experience with the NMR as a technique and the Olive Oil Profiling 2.0 method.

With NMR profiling, a fingerprint of the olive oil sample is acquired, and many parameters are analysed simultaneously. The approaches applied for verification of country of origin, verification of Extra Virgin quality grade, Quantitative analysis of EU-regulated and IOC parameters and the detection of atypical profiles will be explained.
