Authentication of Food by Magnetic Resonance Imaging - AN0628

Description
Magnetic Resonance Imaging methods will be developed to demonstrate feasibility in two areas of food authenticity: (a) Detection of added water in cured meat; (b) Comparision between freah and frozen/thawed produce.
Objective
A feasibility study aimed at validating MRI techniques to determine non-invasively quantitative measures of added water in cured meat and also to differentiate fresh meat as compared to frozen/thawed meat.
