In this Food Safety Spotlight webinar, speakers will be touching on hot button topics such as solutions for shelf-life extension and food safety, screening for pesticide suspects, how product inspection methods can impact sustainability efforts, and more.

Emerging data on the harm caused by foodborne illnesses underscore the global threats posed by unsafe foods, and the need for coordinated, cross-border action across the entire food supply chain. According to the WHO, millions fall ill from foodborne diseases every year, and many die from consuming unsafe food. Foodborne diseases also affect economic development via different sectors such as tourism and the food export industries. The Southeast Asian region is one of the most affected by foodborne diseases with more than 150 million cases and 175,000 deaths annually.

    Today’s businesses are focused on several different initiatives that may seem disconnected from each other like food safety and sustainability efforts. Sustainability is centred around economic, social and environmental pillars, whereas food safety is centred around risk assessment, preventive controls and continuous improvement.

    Searching For The Good And Bad In Citrus Oil
    Quantification Of Pesticides In Citrus Oils And Natural Product Identification
    Citrus oils are widely used in the food and cosmetic industries for their flavour and fragrance. In addition, citrus oils are increasing employed as therapeutic agents due to their apparent antibacterial, antifungal and anticarcinogenic activities. In this webinar, you will get to learn on how to set up an acquisition run to monitor both the natural products and screen for pesticide suspects with a QTOF instrument. In terms of data-processing, we will apply both targeted and untargeted approach to look for knowns and unknowns in citrus oil. Hundreds of natural products were identified using the non-target peak finding processing. Using a targeted screening list, known pesticides compounds were detected in the citrus oils.
