Application Note: Analysis of Common Sweeteners and Additives in Beverages with the PerkinElmer Flexar FX-15 System Equipped with a PDA Detector
13 January 2012

This application note presents a fast and robust liquid chromatography method to test widely used artificial sweeteners such as acesulfame potassium, saccharine and aspartame. A common stimulant and a preservative, namely caffeine and potassium benzoate were tested as well. The method was developed using a 3 μm LC column to achieve very high throughput at a low flow rate to reduce the testing time and solvent usage.
