The implementation of novel and accurate quality and safety control methods in conjunction with chemometrics in various fields of science, particularly in food science, showed that this combination stands for a very powerful tool for detecting food authenticity. The latter reflects both geographic origin and variety. Dairy products, in particular, have repeatedly worried the public authorities in terms of authentication regarding origin and in view of the many illnesses occasionally due to products of specific origin. Therefore, the development of a robust and reliable system endowed with this discriminatory power (varietal and/or geographic) is of great importance, both in terms of public health and consumer protection.
