A method for the determination of cyclamate in food was developed using solid-phase extraction (SPE) and capillary electrophoresis (CE) with indirect ultraviolet (UV) detection. A 5-10 g sample in 0.1 mol/L hydrochloric acid was homogenized and made up to a volume of 50 mL with 0.1 mol/L hydrochloric acid. After the sample was centrifuged, 25 mL of(More)
Food poisoning involving histamine has occurred almost every year for 20 years in Tokyo, and is usually due to ingestion of fish with lean meat, such as sardine, mackerel, horse mackerel and so on. Therefore, we were investigated the levels of histamine and 4 non-volatile amines (tyramine, putrescine, cadaverine, spermidine) in 637 samples on the market.(More)
We previously reported that certain constituents in brewed coffee exhibited antibacterial activities against a strain of Legionella pneumophila. The constituents showing antibacterial activities were included only in extracts cold with water or hot water. To determine the antibacterial substances in coffee extract, the extract was fractionated by HPLC using(More)
The contents of barbaloin (BA), isoBA, aloin-dimers A, B, C, D and aloe-emodin (AE) in aloe drinks were investigated. BA and isoBA were detected in 30 of the 31 samples at the levels of 120-570 micrograms/mL and 120-580 micrograms/mL, respectively. Aloin-dimers A, B, C and D were detected in 8 of the 31 samples at the levels of 12-38 micrograms/mL, 13-39(More)
Contents of alpha-solanine and alpha-chaconine in native species of potato (May Queen, Danshaku and Waseshiro), and in species (Jagakids Red '90 (Red) and Jagakids Purple '90 (Purple)) on the market, and their change during storage at room temparature were investigated. alpha-Solanine and alpha-chaconine were extracted from potatoes with methanol, cleaned(More)
We examined two unknown red dyes (designated as red dyes "A" and "B") from a dried strawberry package with a label that indicated the presence of food red No. 40 (R40). Red dye "A" was identified as trisodium 3-hydroxy-4-[(2'-methoxy-5'-methyl-4'-sulfonatophenyl)azo]-2,7-naphthalenedisulfonate (CSA-R) by HPLC, UV-VIS spectra and MS spectra. This compound is(More)
An extraction and analytical method was developed for determination of the content and profiles of anthocyanins in commercial dietary supplements containing blueberry extract. Dietary supplements were refluxed with hydrochloric acid-methanol solution, and spectrophotometric assay was performed to evaluate the total anthocyanidin content in extracted(More)
Four kinds of barbaloin (BA)-related compounds (A, B, C, D) in aloe drinks were isolated by using preparative HPLC. LC/MS analyses of these compounds showed the identical quasimolecular ion peak at m/z 833 [M-H]-. The chemical structures were mainly determined by NMR, including 1H-1H two-dimensional correlation spectroscopy (COSY), nuclear Overhauser and(More)
A reliable quantitative determination method of sugar alcohols, D-mannitol, xylitol and D-sorbitol, in food samples by HPLC, and a simple confirmation method by LC-MS were developed. Quantitative HPLC analysis was performed using a separation column packed with polystyrene cation exchange resin of sulfonic acid type, and with pure distilled water as the(More)
Rapid multi-residue analysis of pesticides in pulses was developed using LC-MS/MS. Pesticide residues in 5 g of homogenized pulses were extracted with 30 mL of acetonitrile and salted out with 4 g of anhydrous magnesium sulfate and 2 g of sodium chloride in the presence of citrate buffer in a disposable tube. The resulting residues were extracted with 30 mL(More)
