DNA Standards for Food Authenticity Testing

The most famous European food scandal in recent years was the so called “horse meat scandal” in 2013. Horse and pig DNA were found in ground beef products sold in several supermarket chains, which concerned people for religious and/or health reasons. Since then, food authenticity testing has become increasingly important.

DNA-based analytical technologies like PCR or DNA barcoding are powerful tools used to verify food safety and authenticity. These established methods are utilized by testing labs to detect mislabeled products from farms or retailers.

To ensure the safety and authenticity of meat, we launched a series of DNA standards, listed below.
