In general, the adherence to label claim decreased with decreasing fat content. This may be due to methods and stage of vitamin addition prior to processing.
A preliminary study was conducted to determine if the available National Bureau of Standards (NBS) Standard Reference Materials (SRM) Non-Fat Powdered Milk, Oyster Tissue, Wheat Flour, Rice Flour, Spinach, and Albacore Tuna would be suitable for use as organic nutrient standards. These materials were assayed for folates, total pantothenates, vitamin B6,(More)
Three methods for the determination of thiamine in foods were evaluated for accuracy, recovery, and precision: a manual fluorescent method, a semiautomated fluorescent method, and a Lactobacillus viridescens microbiological assay. Thiamine in the samples was destroyed with clam tissue thiaminase; a known amount of thiamine hydrochloride was then added to(More)
Seven commercially available enzymes were studied for suitability as substitutes in the AOAC thiamine determination, because the enzyme Takadiastase used in the method has not been available since 1976, and alternative enzymes were likewise unavailable or unsuitable for releasing thiamine from its phosphate esters. Four factors (substrate ester, enzyme(More)
