This chapter presents general applications of gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) for the determination of the authenticity and quality of fruit juices. The contents of the chapter are mainly based on the determination of the botanical origin, geographical origin, verifying organic cultivation, and detection of foreign matter in fruit juices. Today, the authenticity issue comes into prominence with especially financial and industrial concerns. The GC/MS technique provides high sensitivity, reliability, and precision for the quality control of fruit juices. In this chapter, the GC/MS provided information about the volatile compounds of popular fruits and fruit juices, such as apple juice, citrus juice, orange juice, and fashionable fruit juices. Presented applications highlighted the importance of the determination of volatile compounds and the volatile profile of fruits and fruit juices to maintain food integrity in the food supply chain from farm to fork.
