    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.

    Packaging Sorting

    Packaging waste is mostly made up of different polymers, beverage cartons, paper and glass. Depending on the country in question, different collection systems apply and the material will invariably arrive in different conditions to the MRF’s (Materials Recovery Facility). However, this does not present us with a problem. At TOMRA Sorting, regardless of the collection system operated, we are able to optimally sort the valuable fractions with high efficiency and purity. We currently operate sorting units at packaging MRF’s in many countries including Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, UK and USA.

    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.

    Determination of Additives in Beverages using Ascentis Express Columns

    Beverages, such as sodas and energy drinks, can include a number of polar ingredients, which are easily soluble in the water matrix of the drinks. These ingredients include sweeteners (sugars and sugar substitutes), caffeine, vitamin supplements, amino acids, organic acids, and plant extracts. Because the analytes are already in solution, there is no need for extensive sample preparation. Dilution followed by direct injection into an HPLC is typically suitable. In this article we present two beverage applications using Ascentis Express HPLC columns. Ascentis Express columns offer faster HPLC on any system. One benefit is their ability to produce the resolution, efficiency, and speed on conventional HPLC systems that is associated with the use of sub-2 micron columns on a UHPLC system, without generating high backpressure. Column chemistries (RP-Amide and HILIC) were selected for this article based on their enhanced performance with polar compounds in comparison to C18.

    Recycling equipments for aluminium recycling

    Aluminium items are eminently suited to recycle. Did you know that aluminium can be recycled infinitely without losing quality? Recycling aluminium beverage cans saves 95% of the energy used making an aluminium can, compared to making it from raw bauxite. The energy saved from recycling one aluminium Coca Cola can will run a TV for three hours. If not recycled, it takes 80-100 years for an aluminium can to break down in a landfill.

    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.

    Determination of organic acids and some preservatives in wine and spirits

    The organic acids profile in wine is a highly informative parameter since it reveals important features of the whole technological process. It is also one of the most important criteria for wine authentication. In spirits like cognac, brandy or whiskey, the presence of certain organic acids can indicate the violation of distillation or maturation processes or reveal the tendency to precipitate during storage. Some organic acids (sorbic, benzoic, ascorbic) can serve as preservatives; their presence is strictly regulated. Although the presence of sorbic acid in alcoholic beverages can be natural in some cases, in other cases it can indicate severe violation of the technological process or even complete falsification.

  • Pure drinking water solutions for organic food processing industry

    You go all out to produce only the best culinary creations, so how pure is your water? Water purity can have a huge impact on the flavor, aroma, visual appearance, healthfulness and even shelf life of your foods. Many beverages such as coffee and teas can be up to 99% water, so is it any wonder that water purity makes it taste so much better? When made with our pure water, alcoholic drinks don’t have the oil slick floating on the surface. Sushi masters in Japan love how our water makes sushi rice ‘pop’ in their mouth. When you boil pasta you will notice the lack of foam in the water. Ice tea stays good for weeks instead of days. Soup not only tastes better, but it’s healthier because it’s free of the contaminants present in your tap water. This is how food is supposed to taste!
