7 Most Fraudulent Foods.
Food Fraud Still a Problem.

Olive oil, milk, honey, saffron, orange juice, coffee and apple juice are the seven most likely food ingredients to be targets for intentional or economically motivated adulteration of food.


Food fraud is a collective term that encompasses the deliberate substitution, addition, tampering or misrepresentation of food, food ingredients or food packaging, or false or misleading statements made about a product for economic gain.


Food fraud may be more risky than traditional threats to the food supply because the adulterants used in these activities often are unconventional and designed to avoid detection through routine analysis.


Glycerin, for example, is a sweet, clear, colorless liquid that is difficult to differentiate by sight or smell from other sweet, clear, colorless liquid syrups-including toxic diethylene glycol, which in the past has been substituted for glycerin with deadly consequences. Diethylene glycol has been fraudulently added to wines, and also used as an adulterant of glycerin used in pharmaceuticals.


Other examples include partial substitution of olive oil with hazelnut oil, substitution of toxic Japanese star anise for Chinese star anise, and the partial replacement of low-quality spices with lead tetraoxide or lead chromate to imitate the color of higher-quality spices.


The FDA last week issued a draft guidance reminding the food industry that honey and honey products must not be misbranded or adulterated. Food companies that add sweeteners to honey have to alert consumers by labeling their products as a "blend." Only manufacturers that do not add sugar, corn syrup or other sweeteners should label their products as pure "honey."


In recent and future issues of NCI Well Connect, we provide tips to detect and prevent falling prey to these fraudulent foods.
