|ICS Code (General methods of tests and analysis for food products):||67.050|
Specifies a method for the detection of foods containing crystalline sugars which have been treated with ionizing radiation, by analysing the electron spin resonance (ESR) spectrum, also called electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectrum, of the food. Interlaboratory studies have been successfully carried out on dried figs, dried mangoes, dried papayas and raisins.
