Determination of Sugars in Functional Drinks Using a Compact IC System Be the first to rate this application


Excess sugar consumption is tied to poor health outcomes. Nutritional information including sugar amount is required in the Nutrition Facts label for all pre-packaged foods and drinks by The Nutrition Labeling and Education Act. A high-performance anion exchange method with pulsed amperometric detection (HPAE-PAD) has been developed to accurately determine the sugar concentrations. Here shows the determination of sugars in functional drinks using the Thermo Scientific Dionex Integrion system. This system allows fast determination of sugars with no eluent preparation or sample derivatization.
