PhD Oral Defence: Development of non-targeted strategies for the analysis of trace organic contaminants in honey

29 Mar 2019 13:15

PhD Oral Defence of Annie von Eyken Bonafonte, Food Science and Agricultural Chemistry

Due to the constant increase of contaminants and toxins reported in food, the world of food analysis is shifting towards the detection and identification of currently unknown or unexpected contaminants using non-targeted analysis. The overall objective of this work was the development of a non-targeted method for the analysis of trace organic contaminants in honey.

Sugaring Off

16:00

Experience the onset of this spring in one of the few sugar maple groves remaining on the Island of Montreal.

Enjoy a wagon ride to our sugar shack and learn how syrup is made in the traditional way: on a wood fire, from sap collected in buckets.

German sausages, hotdogs, drinks and, of course, taffy on snow will be sold at a nominal charge.

This is, for the most part, an outdoor event. We don’t take reservations.
