Scope

This standard specifies a method for the identification of irradiation treatment of food containing fat. It is based on the mass spectrometric (MS) detection of radiation-induced 2-alkylcyclobutanones after gas chromatographic (GC) separation. The method has been successfully tested in interlaboratory trials on raw chicken, pork, liquid whole egg, salmon and Camembert. Other studies demonstrate that the method is applicable to a wide range of foodstuffs.
