About this book

The international trade in plants is growing steadily as the worldwide demand for natural and botanical raw materials increases. Customers value natural products and botanicals as "green" alternatives. In order to build assurance into the sourcing of natural ingredients, R&D organizations will need to create valid scientific matrices to authenticate the quality of those ingredients, provide traceability, and minimize risk. Botanicals: Methods and Technologies for Quality & Authenticity provides researchers in industry and academia with the tool necessary to assure the quality, authenticity, and traceability of botanical raw materials for dietary supplements, cosmetics, and natural products research.
