Spectroscopy

Olive oil is among the most commonly adulterated food products. Raman spectroscopy has the potential to be utilized in measurements of olive oil to establish purity from adulteration with other, less expensive, oils. This application note reviews some of the most compelling data present in recent scientific literature to support this claim.
