Methods and means of identification of food products containing the additive E621 are considered in the work. The results of studies of food products with/without an additive are analyzed by the method of impedance spectroscopy. To detect an additive in a food product, identifying features that can be used have been determined. Informative parameters are the active and reactive components of the admittance of the food product.
