Wine traceability: good awnsers from Dna, according ti Cnr
The Italian institute CNR focuses on mapping the DNA to eradicate the problem of fraud.
Chemical and Genetic facts are the most reliable, according to the Director of the Agribusiness Department CNR, Domenico Pignone: "(...) that it really reduces the risk of food fraud you need to implement the functionality of the process through technological innovation systems , which currently are based on alphanumeric codes: bar codes and codes, radio frequency (RFID). These are intended to provide the most promising results. (...) are developing systems of certification of the wine based on genetic data and chemical which, through genetic analysis, such as vines and reveal such yeasts have been used in wine making and using specific chemical analysis, indicate in which soils have been farmed vines. "
This opens the way for tracing, reversed its course. Improving these systems involves a positive impact in many areas: biodiversity "(...) the food to the relationship between diet and well-being to protect specific sectors of the population - Gian Luigi Russo, the Institute of Nutrition (ISA-CNR), confirmed- you can ensure that segments of the population with special needs arising from diseases of food they can consume products that enable them to meet their own needs or cultural health benefits. "
A system that combines chemical and genetic data, for the CNR, would definitely solve the problem of traceability for the entire sector of wine providing useful tools for consumaturi.
We add that it would be a tool also for producers and sellers that want to protect themselves from fraud and plagiarism, both in Italy and abroad.
