13/10/2020: DIETARY FIBER MEASUREMENT HAS CHANGED - what does this mean for you? 

International standardization bodies such as ICC (Standard No. 185) and AOAC (Method 2017.16), recently adopted a new method for the measurement of dietary fiber (DF) content. The Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU) recommended adoption of this new dietary fiber method at their last meeting in November 2019. The next step will be acceptance by the Codex Committee on Methods of Analysis and Sampling (CCMAS).

In this webinar Prof. Barry McCleary, CEO and owner of Megazyme and method's author, will:
  • Highlight what has changed and why
  • Provide guidance on how to select the correct method for a particular food sample (incl. RS2 or RS3)
Furthermore, Dr. Dave Plank, Managing Principal of WRSS Food & Nutrition Insights, will:
  • Focus on the impact this change in DF measurement will have on regulatory compliance by examining the US as a case study
  • Outline in detail the essentials of the analytical documentation needed to support compliant dietary fiber labelling for Nutrition Facts Disclosures in the US

20/10/2020:  A new protocol for RICE VARIETY IDENTIFICATION

Rice is a stable food in Asia and many other parts of the world which is getting more and more popular. The rice variety plays an important role in quality of rice products and the decision of their price. Recently, the adulteration of rice varieties happens in many countries due to the commercial interest.

Dr. Kae-kang Hwo, from the Department of Agronomy at the National Taiwan University, established a protocol for rice variety identification with a novel set of 12 simple sequence repeats (SSR) markers, which has been tested by two stages of international ring trials. This identification method has been applied for an ICC Standard and will be introduced during this webinar.

This webinar organised by ICC in cooperation with the China Grain Products R&D Institute and the Department of Aronomy at the National Taiwan University will consitst of

  • 5 self study tutorials providing recorded presentations and videos
