Carbohydrates in food according to AOAC
contributed by Antec Scientific |
In this application note the analysis of common monosaccharides, disaccharides and more complex oligosaccharides is demonstrated using the ALEXYS Carbohydrates analyzer based on the DECADE Elite electrochemical detector. The sugar profile method published by the AOAC for the analysis of carbohydrates in food, dietary supplements, pet food and animal feeds was used in this study . This method was granted the AOAC first action official method status in 2019. The analysis is based on gradient separation on a High-Performance Anion-Exchange column followed by Pulsed Amperometric detection using a 4-step potential waveform.
