Food News


THIS SECTION IS FOR NEWS AND INTERESTING STORIES RELATED TO FOOD, NUTRITION AND FOOD PROCESSING. THEY ARE NOT NECESSARILY RELATED TO KOSHER BUT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO THE KOSHER CONSUMER, MANUFACTURER OR MASHGIACH.

The following news is from the popsci.com on April 25, 2014.

Scientists from ETH Zurich have created tiny magnetic DNA particles that can be encapsulated in silica, and mixed in with olive oil. These particles can store information about the oil's source and quality. This costs about 2 cents a bottle. If these particles are not present in the correct concentration, the oil has been adulterated. The silica coating prevents the DNA from being adsorbed into the body.
