Abstract

In 1990 the Swedish National Food Administration was commissioned by the Ministry of Agriculture to prepare and develop methods of analysis to identify irradiated foods. This work has been done in cooperation with the Department of Radioecology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Two methods for analyses of irradiated foods have been developed; a chemical method for analysis of products containing fat, and a method for analysis of DNA in cells obtained from foods. Both methods have been tested within the Nordic cooperation programme and the BCR programme (Bureau Communautaire de Reference) organized by the EC. The chemical method for analysis of fats is already an established method that is approved for certain foods by authorities in, for example, Germany. The DNA approach is new and is considered to be a rapid screening method for use in combination with other methods. However, this method requires testing in cooperation with other laboratories before it can be accepted internationally. Laboratories from several countries are already using the method. The two methods described here make it possible to monitor foods such as chicken and duck that have been irradiated due to the risk of salmonella infection. Establishment of wider possibilities to monitor foods will  More>>

The two methods described here make it possible to monitor foods such as chicken and duck that have been irradiated due to the risk of salmonella infection. Establishment of wider possibilities to monitor foods will require an additional method. One such method used today for several foods is the thermoluminescence method. This procedure can be used on prawns and other marine fauna, on spices, and possibly also on strawberries and tomatoes. It is an established approach and is used today for controls in most countries. 37 refs, 12 figs, 2 tabs.}
