Authenticity and Integrity
SGS helps defend against food fraud by verifying the authenticity of the ingredients you use. Our isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS) testing can be used to verify geographic origin, test the authenticity of ingredients labeled as natural, identify undeclared additives and detect the use of synthetic fertilizers in organic products.
Next Generation Sequencing
Our next-generation sequencing (NGS) testing methods are a powerful tool for food analysis, food authenticity testing, and the identification of ingredients, pathogens, allergens and potential adulteration. NGS of DNA samples offers an untargeted test that answers the questions traditional DNA testing (PCR) cannot.
