تحقیقات پزشکی قانونی برای شناسایی مسائل کیفیت و ایمنی مرتبط با غذا و محصول آن بسیار حیاتی است. از GC-MS به‌طور گسترده در تجزیه و تحلیل مواد غذایی استفاده می‌‍شود. مطالعه حاضر، برای شناسایی ترکیبات فعال برخی از ادویه‌های خانگی و همچنین برای شناسایی مواد تقلبی و آلاینده‌هایی که ممکن است در نمونه‌ها وجود داشته باشد، استفاده شده است. ادویه‌های مورد استفاده در تحقیق حاضر فلفل سیاه، زیره، رازیانه، گشنیز و زردچوبه می‌باشد. عصاره ادویه‌ها با شناسایی ترکیبات فعال مختلف ادویه‌ها، مانند پیپرین، کاریوفیلن و 3-کارن در فلفل سیاه، کومینالدئید و 1، 3- متادین- 7- آل در زیره سبز، آنتول و فنچون در رازیانه، لینالول و ژرانیل وینیل اتر در گشنیز و تورمرون و زینجی برن در زردچوبه در احراز هویت این ادویه‌ها مفید بودند. مواد تقلبی شناسایی‌شده از نظر کیفی، تقلبی‌های گیاهی بودند. ثابت شده است که GC-MS یک ابزار موثر در تشخیص مواد تقلبی گیاهی، آلاینده‌های میکروبی، و پسماندهای شیمیایی کشاورزی و همچنین زباله‌های صنعتی و تولیدی است.
