Food analysis is consumer protection
People have always been concerned about the safety and quality of the food they eat: they depend on legislation and official controls for guarantees. Food control is essential for both consumer protection and the food industry, which stands to gain from improved consumer confidence. Analytical methodologies reflect the complexity of the subject and are continuously evolving. Method development, validation and harmonisation are the prerequisites for global implementation of food legislation ensuring adequate food control. Food analysis today requires that food chemistry information be combined with molecular biology in a single interdisciplinary effort.
