The technical capability of IRMM to manufacture reference materials which can be used for authenticity analysis is demonstrated with data from lyophilised orange juice material, comparing the analytical results of the original juice and the reconstituted juices. The technique used in this case, for the detection of the adulteration of orange juice, is SNIF-NMR. The results of the analysis are presented in table form and show that no significant differences were detected between the original fruit juice concentrate, the freshly prepared freeze dried material and the material stored over a period of 24 months. This demonstrates the homogeneity of the material.
