Naturally occurring polysaccharides are used to enhance the texture, taste, stability and consumer appeal of food. Gel permeation/size exclusion chromatography (GPC/SEC) measures the molecular weight/molecular weight distribution and structure of these polymers, parameters which define performance. In this article, Stephen Ball, Product Marketing Manager for Malvern Instruments looks at how the sensitivity delivered by state-of-the-art SEC/GPC systems supports the secure evaluation of different additive grades in food formulation.
