Technical session -1 Method  harmonization and rapid  analysis method  for Antibiotic residues in Food

 

 

 

In India, although antibiotics are used in large quantities over decades, until recently, the existence of the residues of these drugs in milk and meat has received a little concern. It is only in recent years that an extensive investigation of antibiotic substances has been attempted in order to permit an assessment of the public health risks posed by their residues in food substances. Antibiotic usage in livestock production as therapeutics, prophylactics and as growth promoters has become vital to the growing dairy industry since the prolonged or inappropriate usage of such antibiotics might lead to residue accumulations in milk, which in turn pose the risk of human health hazards and also interfere with processing of milk and milk products. The administration of antibiotics against bacterial infections is a significant driving force for selection of resistant strains of bacteria, which can spread from animal to human population and complicate the therapeutic management of such infections. Despite numerous investigations performed, in India, there is still a lack of understanding about antibiotic residues in milk & milk products and other products of animal origin, which includes honey, poultry, meat and fish

Technical Session -2 Analysis of challenging /difficult  Pesticide residues 

 

Pesticide residues resulting from the use of plant protection products on crops or food products
that are used for food or feed production may pose a risk for public health. For this reason, a
comprehensive legislative framework has been established across the World, which defines
rules for the approval of active substances used in plant protection products,5 the use of plant
protection products and for pesticide residues in food. In order to ensure a high level of consumer
protection, legal limits, so called ‘maximum residue levels’ or briefly ‘MRLs’, are established.
Harmonized MRLs are set for more than 500 pesticides covering 370 food products/food groups.
 A default MRL of 0.01 mg/kg is applicable for pesticides not explicitly
mentioned in the MRL legislation. obligation to carry out controls to ensure that food placed on the market is compliant with the legal limits.

Technical Session -3 Food Authenticity 

 

Authenticity of foods is a matter of pressing concern to consumers and manufacturers alike. The supply chain is complex and the ingenuity of the fraudsters knows no bounds, so the industry must be on its guard to face the next issue that comes along. Challenges can come from unexpected sources and addressing these problems may require a multi-disciplinary analytical approach.
