A Simple Recipe for Food Safety and Quality
For food and nutraceuticals producers, nothing is as important as your brand. And to protect it, you need to know that the ingredients in your food products are nutritious, safe, and authentic. But with the cost of raw ingredients steadily increasing, the temptations of economic adulteration can be strong. Some adulterants – rice syrup in honey, apple juice in pomegranate juice, lower grade olive oils masquerading as extra virgin – simply make for an inferior end product. But others – ethylene glycol in cough syrup, urea in milk powders, even melamine in candies – can be downright dangerous. And these substances and more can find their way into the food products and nutraceuticals your customers rely on every day. That’s what Adulterant Screen™ based solutions are designed to prevent.
