ENJOY FOOD, NOT LIES
Food Integrity and Product Authenticity solutions
Do you know and trust what you eat?
Food counterfeiting, product adulteration, ingredient substitution, package mislabeling or outright fraud – there are many ways food can be tampered with. Food fraud is damaging to public health, customer interests, food producers and product brands around the world.
Let us help you.
Stop Fake Food combines the newest scientific and technological achievements to offer an innovative solution of on-site food authenticity and quality testing.
While spectrometry engineering is advancing at rapid speeds, our innovative analytics is enabling wide Raman spectrometry applications for questionable food product and beverage testing throughout different stages of their supply chains.
AI & Machine Learning
Our innovative analytics uses Machine Learning, Neural Networks and other advanced Artificial Intelligence technology methods to learn complex data patterns and recognize key food authenticity and quality parameters, all in a matter of minutes.
How does it work?
User scans a product using a Raman spectrometer. Due to laser technology being used, no sampling or directly invasive procedures are required. In many cases the product scanned does not even need to be unpacked – Raman spectrometers can work through many types of glass, plastic and paper, not matter if the material is solid or liquid (e.g. beverage)
User (laboratory or individual) uploads collected Raman spectra into the SFF Platform for immediate data decomposition and analysis. SFF implements an AI technology-driven data analysis system based on Machine Learning methods (neural networks and other). Neural networks which were trained on pure substances are able to decompose provided spectra into individual constituents and determine the ratio of each within the sample.
Once the analysis is done, the user receives a comprehensive report on the content of the analysed product. SFF can identify product type, check key food safety parameters and compliance with existing standards, examine the composition of ingredients and perform a thorough all-round analysis – all depending on the particular needs of the customer and the settings chosen.
We are building the world’s most functional and usable analysis platform for food authenticity and quality testing. Meat, olive oil and fish are just initial steps. Thanks to machine learning and a scalable business model, in time our analytics will gain capabilities to handle many more food products and beverages.
Numerous and continuous scandals around the world are showing systemic problems with meat products, especially processed ones. Horse meat is often used as a cheap and undeclared substitute for beef, while traces of pork can be found in Halal, Kosher, vegan and supposedly ‘meat-free’ products. Gourmet products are easily faked by using lower quality or unknown origin meats.
Heralded as the vegetable oil with numerous health benefits, olive oil is – at the same time – one of the most counterfeit food products worldwide. Extra virgin olive oil can be easily adulterated with substandard pomace oils and sold as a high-end product to unexpecting consumers. An estimate 5 billion Euro worth of fake olive oil is circulating in the global market.
Formalin, a formaldehyde solution, is a toxin that causes allergies, genetic mutations and cancer. It’s banned in most countries, yet is still regularly and illegally used in around the world as a fish preservative. still illegally used as a fish preservative. Samples from South and South-East Asia are regularly found to contain formalin.
