Event Overview:

Food manufacturers must ensure that TiO2 is within safe levels and correctly listed on the product label. However, measuring TiO2 in food products presents some challenges for the analysis via common atomic spectroscopy. Titanium dioxide may also be present in foods as nanoparticles, which requires specialized measurement techniques if the nanoparticles are to be quantified separately. Agilent is developing the measurement methodology to help manufacturers meet these new regulations.

This webinar will cover:

  • An overview of the EU Ban on TiO2 in Foods
  • How the analysis of titanium is performed using atomic spectroscopy
  • Some of the challenges of analyzing food products using atomic spectroscopy and how they can be overcome
  • How TiO2 nanoparticles are measured

Join Agilent for this webinar to learn how to perform the quantification of titanium dioxide in a variety of food products.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • How TiO2 in food is measured using atomic spectroscopy.
  • How food samples are prepared for analysis of TiO2
  • What TiO2 nanoparticles are and how and why they may need to be measured separately

Who Should Attend:

  • Food QA/QC lab manager
  • Inorganics/metals Lab Analysts working at food manufacturing plants
  • Raw materials production facilities
  • Commercial testing laboratories responsible for nutritional and/or safety testing of foods
  • Regulatory Agencies

Daniel Clayton-Cuch graduated with a Bachelor of Science—with a First Class Honours—majoring in Biochemistry from the University of Adelaide in 2018. He started his industry Ph.D. in early 2020, titled “Identification, characterization, and exploitation of bioactive compounds from plant biomass”. The project heavily focused on manipulating and improving the biosynthesis of polyphenols which have a wide variety of structures. The project collaborated with two industry partners, CSIRO and Agilent Technologies, involving analytical chemistry techniques such as LCMS-QQQ and LCMS-QTOF. Currently, Daniel is finishing his thesis and undertaking an industry placement at Agilent Technologies in the Atomic Spectroscopy Division as part of his industry Ph.D. program, working as an Application Scientist.
