    Gas analysis & monitoring systems for food traceability

    Recognition of raw materials: The analysis of stable isotopes is very important especially in studies of authenticity of the food. It, on the basis of different isotopic ratio, allows to recognize molecules, present in foods, having the same chemical structure but coming from different raw materials or processed by different processes, for example for biological synthesis or industrial.

    Determination of D- and L-isomers of tartaric and malic acids in wines, wine materials, and food additive

    Naturally occurred is predominantly L-form of tartaric acid whereas its D-form and the relevant racemic mixture can be artificially synthesized. Generally, artificial acidification of wine with tartaric acid is allowed by OIV, but only pure L-form must be used for this purpose. Thus the analysis of tartaric acid isomers either in food additives or directly in wine can be an important parameter in clarifying any deviations in wine production. Analysis of isomers of malic acid is also within the necessary oenological procedures stated in OIV recommendations. LUMEX INSTRUMENTS offers the present method which allows determination of L- and D-forms of tartaric and malic acids in wine, wine materials, and special food additives by capillary electrophoresis method.

  • Analysis of Methylimidazoles in Caramel Colored Carbonated Beverages

    Caramel colorings are used as additives in a broad range of food and beverage products to impart a desired color, but have no nutritional or preservative function. Recently, the potential hazard to humans of ammonia- and ammonia-sulfite-process caramel colorings was raised, because they contain the by-product 4-methylimidazole, which is a potential carcinogen.1 The methylimidazole compounds are difficult to analyze due to their polar nature and low molecular weight. Traditional reversed phase techniques are unsuccessful in retaining these small polar compounds. Therefore, most HPLC methods utilize ion-exchange resins for analysis. Another common method involves GC analysis after the analytes first undergo a derivatization step. The purpose of the work shown in this article was to develop a simple and fast analytical method to determine the levels of 2-methylimidazole and 4-methylimidazole in caramel colored carbonated beverages.

  • Increased Pigment Removal with Analysis of Pesticides in Oranges

    An application was developed to demonstrate increased pigment removal for the analysis of pesticides, using Supel™ QuE Z-Sep/C18 QuEChERS and an Ascentis® Express C18 HPLC Column. The improved cleanup can decrease column and instrument fouling, leading to extended LC column lifetime and reduced instrument downtime.

  • Analysis of Pesticides in Beef Kidney

    The suitability of the new cleanup sorbent, Supel QuE Z-Sep+, has been successfully demonstrated for cleanup of beef kidney matrix. It was found to effectively reduce background without significantly reducing recovery of lipophilic pesticides such as organochlorines and some pyrethroids. GC-MS full-scan data indicated Z-Sep+ was found to provide better cleanup in the form of reduced background than PSA/C18, and less interference in the GC-MS/SIM analysis of the target pesticides themselves.

  • Laboratory equipments for analysis of unsaturated fat in seed oils

    Triglycerides are the main constituents of vegetable oil (typically more unsaturated) and animal fats (typically more saturated). They are formed by combining glycerol with three molecules of fatty acid to form ester bonds. The fatty acid composition of oils is commercially important, for example, high oleic acid content found in olive oils, has been implicated in a reduced risk of heart disease. Linoleic acid found in sunflower oils, is an essential nutritional fatty acid. High levels of these fatty acids can increase the commercial value of an oil, whereas excessive amount of linolenic acid can decrease the value since it is more susceptible to oxidation and problems with rancidity.

  • Independent particle characterization services for dietary supplements

    Concurrent with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s final rule establishing regulations to require current good manufacturing practices (cGMPs) for dietary supplements, PTL can offer cGMP services to all supplement manufacturers. PTL has sustained its FDA registration since 1994, which involves rigorous inspections by FDA every 2 years or sooner. According to the final rule, proper controls must be in place for dietary supplements to be produced in a consistent manner for identity, purity, strength, and composition. PTL’s particle characterization tests can be conducted following FDA regulations. Valuable testing such as particle size and shape, image analysis, B.E.T. surface area, pore volume and pore size can be analyzed under cGMP compliance. These analyses can give insight into absorption, strength, and composition of the material being processed.
