Course Description

The IFSTL is hosting a course entitled "Artificial Colors in Foods" with expert instructors from the US FDA who will provide training on compliance and FDA-recommended fit-for-purpose laboratory methods for the measurements of dyes in foods. This course is designed for laboratory scientists and managers to familiarize them with the regulations concerning food coloring additives and fit-for-purpose laboratory methods for their identification and quantification.

This course provides lectures on the regulations in place in the United States and includes hands-on practice of FDA-recommended fit-for-purpose laboratory methods. Liquid chromatographic methods are practiced for the quantitative and confirmatory determination of permitted and not permitted food dyes. Participants will learn how to implement these methods in their own laboratories through expert instruction and hands-on laboratory practice.
