The following news story about food adulteration from the FoodManufacturing.com on March 28, 2013.

Pomegranate and cranberry juices have become popular in recent years because of their antioxident content. "Most pomegranates are grown in Iraq, Syria and Iran stretching north through to a number of the southern, former Russian states such Georgia and Armenia. All of these countries have had their own problems in the recent or near recent past, with suspicious food products being one of them. Recent data suggests a very high percentage of adulterated pomegranate juice is coming from this region." The article suggests that UV/Vis spectroscopy can be used to determine if pomegranate juice is adulterated.
