Something's fishy about new NIST food standard
Accurately measuring exactly what's in the food we eat, before we eat it, is a surprisingly difficult job. Making the process both easier and more accurate is NIST's Standard Reference Material 1946, a set of five bottles of frozen, homogenized trout from Lake Superior. With carefully measured values for 100 chemical constituents, the SRM helps food industry and environmental researchers accurately assess both healthful ingredients and contaminants in fish and similar foods.
