The FCC and associated Reference Materials enables you to verify the identity, quality, and purity of the food ingredients you buy and sell, which help to ensure the overall safety and integrity of the food ingredient supply chain. An FCC standard can be used to characterize ingredients used in food. Monographs in the FCC consist of tests and specifications for identification, assay and impurities, as well as other tests that help describe the purity and quality of the ingredient.
