Summary

Das Vorhaben umfasst ein Teilprojekt des im Rahmen von Core Organic II geplanten Projektes „ Fast methods for authentication of organic plant based foods “. Ziel des Vorhabens ist es, analytische Methoden, Marker und Konzepte auf ihre Eignung zur Authentifizierung ökologischer Lebensmittel zu testen. Es geht darum, Methoden zu finden, die schnell und sicher Fälschungen im ökologischen Sektor erkennen (z.B. Verkauf konventioneller Ware als ökologische Ware). Die Methoden werden anhand definierter Produkte (Weizen, Tomaten) getestet, wobei sowohl Rohware als auch verarbeitete Lebensmittel Gegenstand der Untersuchungen sind. Die Auswertung der Ergebnisse erfolgt in enger Zusammenarbeit eines interdisziplinären Teams mit 16 Partnern aus elf Ländern, u.a. unter Einbeziehung der zukünftigen Nutzer (Zertifizierer). Die Universität Kassel soll in diesem Verbundprojekt die Projektergebnisse evaluieren und verbreiten.
Angaben zur Finanzierung des Projekts finden Sie im Förderkatalog des Bundes unter http://foerderportal.bund.de/foekat/jsp/StartAction.do. Bitte geben Sie in das Suchfeld eine 28 plus das Förderkennzeichen (FKZ) des BÖLN-Projektes ein, z.B. 2808OE212 für das BÖLN-Projekt mit der FKZ 08OE212.

Summary translation

The market shares for organic products have been continuously growing over the last decade. Organic products are generally sold at premium prices compared to conventional ones. Recently, there have been a growing number of reported cases, where conventional food products were mislabelled and fraudulently sold as organic. Consequently, there is an urgent need for development and validation of analytical methods, which allow discrimination between organic and conventional food products. These tools will be essential remedies for certification and inspection bodies in order to strengthen the credibility of the growing organic sector within EU. During the last decade several analytical methods have been suggested for authentication of organic crops, but a comprehensive evaluation of the methodologies has not yet been performed.
The objective of AuthenticFood is to test a portfolio of the most promising analytical methods, markers and concepts for their ability to authenticate organic products. This project aims to provide the tools that will ultimately give confidence to consumers by revealing fraudulent substitution of organic with conventionally cultivated products and consequently to promote organic food through assured authenticity. The evaluation of these tools will be performed in a close cooperation between 16 partners from 11 European countries, encompassing agronomists, analytical chemists as well as inspection and certification bodies, with significant expertise in authentication and organic agriculture.
