Conforming to the necessities set out in lots of of those legislation and directions calls for the chemical and actual research of meals. this can contain qualitative research within the detection of unlawful nutrition elements akin to sure colourings or, on the whole, the quantitative estimation of either significant and minor nutrients ingredients. This quantitative research of meals performs a major function not just in acquiring the mandatory info for the needs of dietary labelling but additionally in making sure that meals agree to wanted flavour and texture caliber attributes. This e-book outlines the variety oftechniques on hand to the meals analyst and the theories underlying the on the whole used analytical equipment in nutrition studies.

The presence of nitrogen in proteins is often used as the basis of the estimation of protein in foods. A number of methods are available for protein estimation, the method chosen THEORY OF ANALYTICAL METHODS FOR SPECIFIC FOOD CONSTITUENTS being dependent on the degree of accuracy and precision required and on the facilities available. 1 Kjeldahl method This method was first published in 1883 by Kjeldahl, head of the chemistry department of the Danish brewing company, Carlsberg, and remains the main method of nitrogen and protein assays in foods, both for routine analyses and for the calibration of modem instruments.

A known weight of food is placed in a porous thimble and the extracting solvent is placed in a dried, weighed distillation flask. The solvent is then heated, when it volatilises, and it is collected, after condensing, in a container housing the porous thimble. The solvent then mixes with the food, dissolves out the fat and eventually siphons back into the original distillation flask. 2 (a) Soxhlet (traditional) and (b) Soxtec (final extraction with condense solvent) fat extraction apparatus (reproduced by kind permission ofPerstorp Analytical Ltd).
