Analytical methods for determination of trans-C18 fatty acid isomers in milk fat. A review.

  title={Analytical methods for determination of trans-C18 fatty acid isomers in milk fat. A review.},
  author={Martial Ledoux and Laurent Laloux and Robert Lee Wolff},
This review describes analytical methods developed for the separation, identification and quantitation of trans-isomers of unsaturated fatty acids. Although these methods are applicable to a wide variety of food matrices, we have particularly emph a- sised the analysis of trans unsaturated fatty acids in milk fat. Various methods are described such as infrared spectroscopy, direct gas chromatography, gas chromatography in combination with either thin-layer chromatography or liquid…

Analytical methods for determination of trans fatty acid content in food

Adequate analytical tools are required for labelling food products for trans fatty acid (TFA) contents. The choice of the fatty acid (FA) derivatisation is a crucial step in obtaining good results,

Chromatographic Methods to Analyze Geometrical and Positional Isomers of Fatty Acids : A Review

Problems in analyzing fatty acids are to obtain good resolution of geometrical and positional isomers. In GCMS analysis, common derivative of fatty acids such as fatty acids methyl ester (FAME) will

Development of Analytical Methods and Nutritional Studies Using Synthetic Fatty Acids and Triacylglycerols.

Recently, the distribution of dietary fatty acids in the body were visualized by combining a stable isotope labeling technique with imaging mass spectrometry, which revealed that the administered arachidonic and docosahexaenoic acid accumulated as phospholipid in the mouse brain.

Trans fatty acid analyses in samples of marine origin: the risk of false positives.

At conditions commonly applied for trans fatty analyses by gas chromatography, fatty acids naturally occurring in marine lipids may overlap chromatographically with C16 and C18 trans fatty acids and

Comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography in the analysis of dietary fatty acids.

The GC x GC method clearly improved the separation efficiency of the fatty acids in comparison with one-dimensional GC analysis and proved to be suitable for the quantification of the analytes.

Separation of cis/trans fatty acid isomers on gas chromatography compared to the Ag-TLC method

The present study investigates the separation of the cis/trans isomers of fatty acids on the 75 m SP2560 column under different gas chromatographic (GC) conditions including an isothermal program and

The determination of cis and trans fatty acid isomers in partially hydrogenated plant oils

Trans isomers are formed during the partial hydrogenation process of cis unsaturated fatty acids. The major source of trans fatty acids in the normal person's diet is from margarines and shortenings
