Chromatography Dominates Food Pesticide Testing Method Worldwide

Several nations prefer chromatography as it detects the presence of pesticides in food most accurately, says RNCOS.


Noida, UP -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/08/2014 -- Food contamination is rapidly increasing across the globe and is raising concerns about food safety. Food violations through contaminants like pathogens, pesticides, toxins, GMO, and certain other unwanted particles is drawing the attention of developed as well as developing countries to introduce most appropriate methods for contaminant detection. According to a new report by RNCOS “Global Food Safety Testing Market Outlook 2018”, pesticides occupy the largest share in global food safety testing market by contaminants followed by pathogen.

According to our report, pesticide residues in food are quite common as crop needs pesticides to ward off all the unwanted pests and weeds but it causes an equal harm to human health. Most countries are using chromatography for detecting of pesticide levels in foods. In chromatography, various constituents of the mixture travel at different speeds, causing them to separate. The separation is based on differential partitioning between the mobile and stationary phases. The constituents travel different heights through mobile phase on stationary phase and can be easily detected with the levels to which they reach and the color changes they show. Advanced softwares in HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) are adding to the benefits of traditional method of chromatography thereby making it one of the preferred methods for detecting pesticides in food.
