RIKILT determines the molecular composition of food products.
Based on the substances present, we can provide information regarding the safety and quality of the food. We can also determine the authenticity and origin of products. For example, we can evaluate if an egg is organic. We carry out research into the biological effects, both positive and negative, of substances and contaminants in food and feed as well. In doing so, we identify and evaluate potential safety and quality issues. In addition, we are specialised in tracking and tracing natural toxins and evaluating the safety of genetically modified food.
