The beverage industry faces increasing regulatory scrutiny when dealing with beverage content. Content such as sugars, organic acid acidulants, and flavoring agents provide the characteristic flavor of beverages. Organic acid acidulants and flavoring agents maintain beverage freshness while minimizing microbiological growth. Sugar content is important to achieve the final desired sweetness of the beverage product. In order for the beverage industry to maintain product quality, meet product labeling requirements and ascertain adulteration, the detection of these three components becomes vital.
This webinar will highlight the use of high pressure capillary IC with a high resolution 4 μm particle size anion-exchange column and a Reagent- FreeTM integrated or modular ion chromatograph to determine organic acids and inorganic anions. We will also discuss how monosaccharides and disaccharides are determined directly by High Performance Anion-Exchange chromatography and Pulsed Amperometric Detection (HPAE-PAD) using a metal-free integrated or modular capillary RFIC chromatograph.
Subject Areas Covered in Presentation:
• Learn about the benefits of high-pressure separations at capillary flow rates for IC and HPAE-PAD
• Learn about the benefits of 4 μm particle-size capillary IC columns
• Learn about applications for beverage analysis
