Proposal titleCAROB BEAN OR GUAR: DEVELOPING AN ANTI-FRAUD METHODOLOGY

AbstractEuropean Directive (98/86/EC) presents an important gap in the technical  description of

procedure to distinguish between two food additives E-410 (carob bean) and E-412 (guar).

This fact allows the fraud on the use and on the purity ofspecific additives by end users

European companies are in a disadvantaged situation respecting Asian ones. The useof

E-412 instead of E-410 affect directly to European market. The undetectableadulteration

of carob bean gum batches with guar gum, affect to the price of theproduct. The

adulteration (10-40%) causes reduction of the price of some batches(70-90%) of the real

costs. The fraud supposes an illegal and uncontroled competence against European

companies. As consequence, the actual situation actsindirectly on sustainable growth of

their employs.That is why is necessary the development of a new method capable to

discriminatebetween both types of additives to give solution to this problem.
