Title: Standard Reference Materials for Food Analysis
Published: March 21, 2013
Abstract: Well-characterized reference materials with assigned concentrations of nutrients are needed as matrix-matched controls for analytical measurements to assist food manufacturers in quality control and facilitate compliance with nutritional labeling laws. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed numerous authentic food-matrix Standard Reference Materials (SRMs) in direct response to passage of legislation such as the Infant Formula Act (IFA) of 1980 and the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act (NLEA) of 1990. At the request of the food industry, these materials have been selected to populate a nine-sectored food composition triangle developed by AOAC International. These materials are intended for use in the validation of analytical methods for determination of nutrients such as proximates, fatty acids, vitamins, and elements in food products
