TRU-ID Coffee Authentication Exclusively Available from Coffee Analysts

Burlington Vermont, USA & Guelph, Ontario, Canada, April 5, 2016 – Until today, determining Arabica (Coffea arabica) or Robusta (Coffea canephora) species in coffee products has been the work of educated guesses. TRU-ID has developed groundbreaking molecular diagnostics that provides confidence in coffee products authenticity to eliminate adulteration or mislabeling.

TRU-ID provides forensic testing capabilities and services to identify species adulteration of coffee products, mitigating the impact of inauthentic products to brands, companies, investors and consumers. TRU-ID’s certified authentic program can be used to quantify coffee components as 100% Arabica, or to identify the blend percentages with Robusta coffee. These tools may also be used to determine if adulterations are used in coffee products.

“In price sensitive markets, lower priced Robusta coffee may be blended with Arabica coffee to increase profitability” states Dan Cox, President of Coffee Analysts. “Only now do we have an advanced scientific tool to verify authenticity and ensure that buyers are getting exactly what they are paying for.”

Dr. Steven Newmaster, PhD, Chief Science Officer at TRU-ID, developed the testing methodology to identify the species components of roasted coffee, brewed coffee, and soluble coffee. He partnered with Coffee Analysis to provide sales and marketing of the service to the coffee industry, as well as their own world-class physical and sensory analysis for coffee products. “We are excited to partner with Coffee Analysts, an industry leader in coffee quality testing,” states Dr. Newmaster
