Metabolomics in Food and Nutrition

From raw materials to the final consumer product, the monitoring of the production and distribution cycle of Food is of importance with regard to safety, authenticity and quality of food for producers, consumers and regulatory agencies. To achieve this, precise and accurate analytical tools are needed in order to ensure origin, properties, falsification, and reliability of food.

The NMR based JuiceScreener is a perfect example how Bruker addressed this need with a push button solution in juice assessment applying a Targeted and Non-Targeted Multi Marker Analysis.

In addition to food control, metabolomics approaches are successfully applied in food and nutrition trait optimization. In particular metabolomics based research to enhance nutrition and taste characteristics holds great potential for the agricultural industry. Targeted as well as non-targeted metabolomics approaches are readily enabled by Bruker´s product portfolio for comprehensive small molecule profiling based on complementary LC-MS, GC-MS, NMR and FT-IR technology.
