Gelatine 

As gelatine is a highly processed product (and a high level of processing disrupts DNA and proteins), it is difficult to determine the species of origin as methods such as DNA analyses and protein analyses by immunoassays are disrupted. Fera has developed a peptide LC-MS/MS technique which can be used to determine the origin of the gelatine, for example whether a food product or ingredient contains ruminant or pork gelatine, to a known detection level.

Wines, Beers, Spirits and Fruit Juice 

Strengthening your brand and consumer confidence: Utilising a multidisciplinary approach, Fera can provide an overall snapshot of wine, spirits and fruit juice samples, evaluating their quality against known and lesser-known adulteration tactics. This will support your quality control provisions to support accurate labelling and identify adulterants. For fruit juice, testing is available to substantiate ‘not from concentrate’ claims.
