Analysis of Food Fraud & Authenticity Agave Syrup
Like honey, agave syrup can also be diluted by adding cheaper syrups in order to achieve a higher profit.
The d-13C isotope values of the agave syrup and the individual sugars can be used to detect foreign sugars.
A further possibility to detect adulteration in agave syrup is NMR analysis. The profile of agave syrup is compared with a database of authentic agave syrups. Deviations in the NMR profile can indicate adulteration of the agave syrup with other syrups.
