Abstract

The measurement of the stable isotope contents provide useful information for the detection of many frauds in food products. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Isotopic Ratio Mass Spectrometry are the two main analytical techniques which are used for the determination of stable isotope contents in food products. These analytical techniques have been considerably improved in the last years offering wider possibilities of applications for food analysis. A review of the applications for detection of frauds is presented for wines, alcohol's, vegetable oils, fruit juices and flavours. The needs for new reference materials is discussed.
