Simultaneous Analysis of Nine Food Additives with the PerkinElmer Flexar FX-15 System Equipped with a PDA Detector
25 Oct 2012
There is a need for analytical techniques to identify and quantify additives because the food industry is required to list the type and amount of each ingredient on product labels to help consumers make dietary choices and manage food allergies. This application note from PerkinElmer presents a fast and robust liquid chromatography method to simultaneously test nine widely used additives. Method conditions and performance data including precision, accuracy and linearity are presented. The method is applied to a mouthwash and tonic soda and the type and amount of additives are confirmed.
