UPCOMING: Redefining Food Analysis and Food Processing

December 5 @ 10:00 AM EST. As food scientists, we are facing one of the greatest challenges: feeding a growing world population while at the same time, reducing our impact on the environment and decreasing the incidence of diet-related chronic diseases. This presentation will discuss some examples to show how various by-products from agro-food chains (e.g. dairy streams, hazelnut skin, orange peel, coffee spent grounds…even kombucha scoby) can be valorized, particularly regarding the prebiotic oligosaccharides content.

ON-DEMAND: Ultra-Trace Analysis of Dioxins Using GC-MS/MS Detection

The webinar covers experiences with the use of hydrogen as a carrier gas for ultra-trace analysis of dioxins using GC-MS/MS detection. It discusses the comparison of the 7000C and 7010 ion sources under He and H2, the development of a method for PCDD/F analysis and its performance on real food and feed sample extracts. The webinar is intended for analytical chemists and mass spectrometry users. Attendees will learn about the usability of hydrogen for dioxin analyses and the detector performance of the 7010 MS/MS ion source.

ON-DEMAND: Expectations and Trends in Third-Party Auditing

An ongoing challenge for the food and beverage industry that increased with recent FSMA regulations is the oversight of suppliers’ ingredients, facilities, and production methods to ensure food safety protocols are in place. Working with third-party auditors to conduct supplier audits is an increasing trend as food and beverage companies seek to reduce costs and suppliers deal with more and more audit requirements.
