New maximum levels for chlorate residues in food

Since 28 June 2020, Regulation (EU) 2020/749 on new maximum levels for chlorate residues in food has come into effect and applies also retroactively to products manufactured or imported into the EU before that date. Chlorates were formerly used as crop protection agents (total herbicides). For some time now, however, chlorates have not been allowed to be used as pesticides across the EU. Despite this ban, chlorate residues are frequently found in food. The reasons for these findings can be very different. Contamination from the use of chlorinated washing water or irrigation water can be the ca ...


PA''s Not Only in Oregano

Pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PA) are secondary plant materials that are mainly formed by certain plants, e.g. Senecio jacobaea, and serve to protect against predators. What protects one person can harm another. Thus, certain PA''s can damage the liver and should therefore be minimized according to the ALARA principle. A correspondingly increased risk exists, for example, with products such as tea, herbs, spices and food supplements, especially their herbal raw materials. Tropane alkaloids and ergot alkaloids should also be monitored for the above-mentioned products. GBA Group can help yo ...


Authenticity Testing of Olive Oil at the Tentamus Center for Food Fraud

Olive oil is becoming more and more popular and enjoys the reputation of being particularly healthy for both young and old. Italy is the first country that comes to mind when it comes to high-quality, natural, authentic olive oil. However, olive oil labels do not always tell the truth. In terms of food adulteration, the sky is the limit. Last year, for example, 150,000 litres of oil were discovered which were labelled as olive oil but did not contain a drop of olive oil. Instead, sunflower and soya oil with the addition of chlorophyll and b-carotene were used. Even simpler is the relabeling of ...


New Maximum Levels for Perchlorate

With the Commission Regulation (EU) 2020/685 amending the Regulation (EC) No. 1881/2006, perchlorate is now included among the contaminants. Perchlorate is considered a contaminant that can enter the product e.g. via groundwater, irrigation water, certain fertilizers, or the water used for washing during production. Perchlorate can have adverse effects on human health by inhibiting iodine intake. Maximum levels have been set for the following product groups: fruit and vegetables, tea, herbal and fruit infusions, and certain baby foods. For fruit and vegetables, these maximum levels apply to th ...

Coronavirus is causing a multitude of problems for customers. How can your Ecovis partner help? Let us look at the case study of a large logistics firm. After Spain declared a state of emergency, we first had to advise the customer on whether he was an essential service or not.

All Shiga Toxine-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) subtypes are pathogenic

The Pathogenicity assessment of ?Shiga toxine-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) and the public health risk posed by contamination of food with STEC? from 2013 was recently reviewed by EFSA. Based on the assessment it was concluded that all STEC strains are pathogenic in humans, capable of causing at least diarrhoea and that all STEC subtypes may be associated with severe illness (defined as bloody diarrhoea (BD), haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS) and/or hospitalization). Furthermore EFSA suggests that ?bovine meat and products thereof?, ?milk and dairy products?, ?tap water including well wate ...


High-tech analysis of airbone rust on superyachts

To avoid long-term damage to superyachts caused by airborne rust, timely and accurate identification of contamination is required. A superficial diagnosis may result in inappropriate cleaning or repair, in turn resulting in higher costs. Technologies such as 3D microscopy provide new options for detecting contamination from rust particles and selecting the right treatment. Airborne rust is iron dust that rusts in the air. The particles usually originate from nearby metal objects and settle on other surfaces. This is a threat that also exists in ports and shipyards. For example, one source of c ...


Hygiene measures - HACCP concept for food producers

Hygiene measures - In each operation, the staff has now been trained to wash their hands and disinfect regularly. Disinfection is possible at various points in the respective facilities and has become a basic requirement. The topic of hygiene will certainly remain a central issue. In general, there is currently an increased use of disinfectants. For this reason, food producers in particular should use an appropriate HACCP concept to prevent the possible risks of product contamination. It is therefore particularly important for food producers to deal with this issue in a timely and sustainable ...


New: SARS-CoV-2 sampling kit for face masks

People infected with coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 secrete the virus through droplets when breathing out, speaking, coughing, or sneezing. Wearing mouth, nose, or any respiratory mask is therefore intended to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. Studies have shown that SARS-CoV-2 can be detected in masks worn by infected people. To prevent a further spread of COVID-19, BAV INSTITUT now offers, along with various surface tests, the testing of worn face masks for coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. The respective sampling set can be ordered immediately from BAV INSTITUT, a member of the Tentamus Group. The sampli ...
