Foodstuffs - Detection of irradiated food containing fat - Gas chromatographic/mass spectrometric analysis of 2-alkylcyclobutanones
This European Standard specifies a method for the identification of irradiation treatment of food containing fat. It is based on the mass spectrometric (MS) detection of radiation-induced 2-alkylcyclobutanones after gas
chromatographic (GC) separation  to .
The method has been successfully tested in interlaboratory trials on raw chicken, pork, liquid whole egg, salmon and Camembert  to .
Other studies demonstrate that the method is applicable to a wide range of foodstuffs  to .
