USP's Food Fraud Database

USP's Food Fraud Database

A searchable online database has been developed by USP as a repository for food ingredient fraud reports and associated analytical detection methods. Such information can be useful to parties responsible for assessing existing and emerging risks and trends for economically motivated adulteration, authenticity, fraud, or counterfeiting issues for food ingredients. In addition, it can be useful for those managing the risk of food fraud by providing a library of detection methods reported in peer-reviewed scientific journals. An extract of the information in this database is also published in the Food Chemicals Codex as a table in the General Information section.
