|Abstract:||The evolution of the different rules about forbidden and authorized raw materials in feed formulation requires developing and continuously adapting the methods used for the detection of illicit ingredients. Different studies carried out during the last years have permitted the development of techniques like the NIR microscopy (NIRM) based on spectroscopy. This methodology combines the optical microscopy and the spectroscopic benefi ts. Moreover, it allows the analysis of a larger number of samples per unit of time than with optical microscopy and the recognition does not depend on the expertise of the analyst. Based on studies performed in the framework of the SAFEED-PAP project, the aim of this chapter is to give the readers an overview of the NIRM technique applied to the discrimination of the species origin of animal protein by-products (APBs) in feeds.|
