Abstract

In the present study, analytical methodologies based on inductively coupled plasma – mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) were developed for the determination of the elemental profile of saffron as a tool for its geographical traceability. Due to the high commercial price of the spice, special focus was paid in using only a minute amount of sample (30 mg).
