Detection of adulteration of Basmati rice with non‐premium long‐grain rice

Detection of adulteration of Basmati rice with non‐premium long‐grain rice Summary Basmati rice is, on average, sold at 2–3 times the price of other rice available on the world market. As such, there is a requirement for a method that would allow the detection of non‐Basmati long‐grain rice within samples of Basmati. This paper reports the use of fluorescent simple sequence length polymorphisms (SSLPs) between known Basmati rice cultivars and likely adulterants, to detect the presence of any adulterant. The competitive nature of the fluorescent detection method also enabled crude estimations of the amount of adulteration present in blind test samples. Further, the difficulty in quantifying the level of adulteration is discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Food Science & Technology Wiley

Abstract

Summary Basmati rice is, on average, sold at 2–3 times the price of other rice available on the world market. As such, there is a requirement for a method that would allow the detection of non‐Basmati long‐grain rice within samples of Basmati. This paper reports the use of fluorescent simple sequence length polymorphisms (SSLPs) between known Basmati rice cultivars and likely adulterants, to detect the presence of any adulterant. The competitive nature of the fluorescent detection method also enabled crude estimations of the amount of adulteration present in blind test samples. Further, the difficulty in quantifying the level of adulteration is discussed.
