Analytical Tools for Assessing the Chemical Safety of Meat by Fidel Toldrá

By Fidel Toldrá

The target of the short is to summarize the cutting-edge at the chemical questions of safety at present referring to meat and fowl, and to debate the present foreign laws at the instruments to be had for his or her keep watch over. The short will assessment the analytical controls and instrumentation to be had for the keep watch over of residues of progress promoters, antibiotics, and the other environmental elements in uncooked meat and chicken. furthermore, there'll be a dialogue of either the ingredients that could be generated as a result of processing, and the instruments which are on hand for his or her regulate. those ingredients could be fairly different in nature; they could contain, for instance, the heterocyclic amines generated via heating, the nitrosamines occasionally found in cured meats with nitrite if no longer safely processed, the polycyclic fragrant hydrocarbons that may be generated looking on the kind of smoking used, or the biogenic amines that may be generated in the course of fermentation. ultimately, the controls for the detection of overseas proteins (e.g., whey proteins) within the ultimate items might be additionally compiled. The short will finish with a view of destiny developments and key references for readers drawn to studying extra approximately this topic.

Nitrites and nitrates were authorized as additives in Directive 95/2/EC on food additives other than colors and sweeteners. This directive was amended by Directive 2006/52/EC of 5 July 2006, where the initial amounts were replaced by maximum levels to be added. In general, the maximum amount of nitrite that can be added to all meat products is 150 mg/kg, whereas nitrate can be added in the case of unheated meat products to a maximum of 150 mg/kg (Honikel 2010). There are some exceptions like Wiltshire or drycured bacon, where the amounts are slightly higher.

This decision provides rules for the analytical methods to be used in testing official samples and lays down specific criteria by which official control laboratories are to interpret the analytical results of such samples. In the case of screening methods, the correct validation procedures are also stated. An example of a general procedure for the analysis of a meat or poultry sample when screening for veterinary drug residues is shown in Fig. 1. , agonists, thyreostatic agents, various antibiotics) in a variety of matrices such as feed, water, urine, hair, muscle, and organs and in a large number of samples, necessitating the availability of screening techniques (Bergwerff 2005; Reig and Toldrá 2008a).

Once the extract is injected into the column, the analyte is retained by the antibody bound to the matrix while the rest of the extract is eluted. 3 Veterinary Drugs 31 Extraction Washing Desorption Sample + Analyte Acetonitrile + 1% acetic acid Methanol + 10% acetic acid Antibody + Analyte Antibody Antibody Eluent Analyte Evaporation LC Fig. 3 Stages in immunoaffinity chromatography purification of a particular analyte.
