The Food Detective's Toolbox
More and more cases in recent years have shown that we need methods for efficient detection of food fraud. One recent example was when meat producers mixed beef with horse meat to make more money. The lecture discusses how scientists use advanced technologies such as near-infrared spectroscopy and mathematical modeling to quickly and effectively detect cheating with food, and how the food industry itself uses technology to ensure consumers products of high and consistent quality.
