A paper-based colorimetric spot test for the identification of adulterated whiskeys

Author affiliations

Abstract

A colorimetric point-of-care paper-based analytical device (PAD) is developed for detecting adulterated beverages using whiskey falsified with caramel color as a model. Combining principal component analysis and calibration curves facilitated identification of adulteration in samples seized by the Brazilian Federal Police, at only ∼$0.02 per sample.
