Towards a Universal Approach Based on Omics Technologies for the Quality Control of Food

Table 1

Updated list of DNA barcoding case studies in the field of food science and principal stakeholders. Producers are interested in valuing their crops or breeds by molecular certification; distributors are mainly interested in the traceability and authentication of traded products; the interest of consumers is to avoid commercial frauds/species substitutions and have an assurance on food provenance.
