In a recently published issue of the Perfumer & Flavorist, Beta Analytic Global Operations Manager Jasmine Garside talks about challenges in garlic oil production, the vulnerability of garlic oil to adulteration and how companies can verify the “natural” claims of their suppliers through Carbon-14 analysis.
Many ingredient suppliers sell both natural and synthetic garlic oil. By incorporating in their Quality Assurance programs third-party analytical testing to verify the natural content of the garlic oil used in their products, companies are able to protect the integrity of their brands.
