Quantitative Analysis of Chromium and Arsenic Species in Food and Food Packaging using LC-ICPMS
Food safety is one of the major concerns of the European population and the European Commission is aiming to assure a high level of food safety and animal & plant health within the EU through the farm-to-fork principle. This implements effective control systems for harmful substances such as pesticides, mycotoxins and heavy metals. Nowadays in food control the speciation analysis has become an important tool for the determination of elements like cadmium, chromium, mercury, tin, and arsenic where simply the measurement of the total amount of the element is not sufficient.
