Publications about Authenticity

Economically motivated adulterations are a worldwide problem for the food trade.

High-quality raw materials are stretched with inferior goods, the real origins are obscured or in the case of honey and agave syrup diluted with industrially produced syrups in such a way that determining the authenticity of the product becomes more difficult. High-quality coffee qualities, such as Arabica coffee, are mixed with cheaper Robusta varieties, but this blend is not labelled.

See following publications about adulteration – Please find additional Information about NMR here:
