Identification and Verification of Fatty Acids
1 December 2017

This application note describes the utilization of the Metrohm Instant Raman Analyzer Mira. M-3 for identification and verification of fatty acids, similar to those found in cosmetics or nutraceuticals. Nutraceuticals are food-derived products that claim to provide extra health benefits in addition to basic nutritional value and can be found in gel caps. Determination of ingredient identity and purity are essential to product quality, and inspection of ingredients prior to the start of the manufacturing process will prevent costly time delays and substandard product quality.
