A scientific paper entitled ”Authenticity Assessment of Ground Black Pepper by Combining Headspace Gas-Chromatography Ion Mobility Spectrometry and Machine Learning” has now been published in Food Research International (Elsevier journal)
The study assessed a broad variety of authentic samples originating from eight countries and three continents. The method uses head-space gas-chromtaography ion mobility spectrometry (HS-HC-IMS), combined with machine learning. It requires no sample preparation and is rapid. In this proof-of-concept study, the methos successfully classified samples with an accuracy of >90% with a 95% level of confidence.
