    Abstract

    The presence of processed animal proteins (PAP), including meat and bone meal (MBM) from various species, in animal feed was investigated. It was demonstrated that microscopy is the most reliable method for enforcing the current total MBM ban in the European Uion (EU). It was shown that near infrared microscopy (NIRM) applied to the sediment fraction of the sample is a very reliable tool for the detection of meat and bone meal in feed. The technique was suggested to be an alternative method for the detection of MBM, especially when the required instrumentation becomes more affordable.
