Advantage of LC-MS metabolomics methodology targeting hydrophilic compounds in the studies of fermented food samples.


The utility of a liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS) method, using a pentafluorophenylpropyl (PFPP) bonded silica, was demonstrated in a metabolomics study of fermented food samples. Our LC-MS method was applied to Japanese fermented food (miso) of different stages of ripeness. The data acquired were evaluated by principal component analysis… (More)
