This draft European Standard specifies a method of detecting whether food has been treated by ionizing radiation by thermoluminescence analysis of contaminating silicate minerals. The method is applicable to those foodstuffs from which a sufficient amount of silicate minerals can be isolated. The method has been successfully tested in interlaboratory tests with herbs and spices and their mixtures (1) to (3) and shrimps (4) et (5).
