Development and release of aroma compounds from food products is a dynamic process. Conventional analytical technologies are poorly suited to studying changes on the seconds to minutes' timescale. This webinar will introduce selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) – a recent introduction to the flavor chemist's and new product developer's analytical tool kit. SIFT-MS analyzes chemically diverse flavor compounds in real-time analysis, including amines, organosulfur compounds, and volatile fatty acids.

In this webinar, we will describe the benefits of SIFT-MS for flavor analysis using various application examples:
• flavor development during processing of tomato, mango and cocoa
• enzymatic flavor generation in fresh tomatoes and strawberries
• in vivo assessment of "garlic breath" deodorization.

Key Learning Objectives:


• The fundamentals of the selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) technique, including its ability to selectively and comprehensively analyze samples in one, simple procedure.

• How real-time analysis using SIFT-MS can provide great insight into flavor generation and flavor release.

• How direct analysis can simplify workflow and speed new product development.

Who Should Attend:


• Food researchers

• Food technologists and new product developers

• Food processing chemists

• Analytical chemists in the food industry

• Laboratory Managers / Directors / Supervisors

• QA/QC managers and scientists
