It is been happening for millennia; the sale of food that is not quite what it should be. We call it food fraud, and it is a serious problem. There are many types of food fraud: mislabelling, adulteration and dilution to name just a few.
In the world of food fraud, Mineral Salt adulteration is one act of defrauding buyers, product developers and in the end consumers for economic gain. Mineral Salts used in food and dietary supplements to have genuine health benefits are replaced by unreacted, blended compounds. This leads to uncontrolled impurity profiles, formulation stability problems, misbranded and finally adulterated products or even to problems in regards of bioavailability or digestibility.
Mainly organic Mineral Salts such as Citrates and Bisglycinates are adulterated and in focus to be replaced by using all kinds of substances. Due to globalisation and fragmentation of the flow of goods as well as creative forms of falsification and new methods of analytical proof, Mineral Salt adulteration remains an industry challenge, even as industry and consumer increasingly demand more transparency in sourcing and labelling.
