Rapid Authentication of Foods, Beverages and Dietary Supplements by MALDI-TOF MS

This webinar took place on December 1, 2021

Webinar Overview

Cranberry, grape seed, and pine bark extract ingredients are used in formulation of popular dietary supplements, and their economic adulterations are a cause for a serious concern. The same can be said about high quality foods and ingredients, such as feta cheese and extra virgin olive oil.

Rapid and reliable detection of such adulterations presents a significant challenge to the modern natural products industry and stimulates development of new more effective solutions. MALDI-TOF MS is an advanced analytic tool that provides several significant advantages over more conventional techniques, including unparalleled throughput and speed of analysis, as well as much higher accuracy and specificity.

Join us for this virtual event to learn about the MALDI-TOF MS workflows for adulteration and authenticity analysis. We will cover multiple examples of various foods and ingredients, explain the underlying principles and elaborate on practical aspects of throughput and day-to-day operation.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • How the authenticity analysis with MALDI-TOF MS mitigates risk of purchasing an adulterated natural product.
  • How MALDI-TOF MS data can be used to substantiate structure function claims for dietary supplements.

Who Should Attend: 

  • Food scientists and chemists
  • Food testing, R&D and QA/QC professionals
  • Lab managers
