Furan is a 5-membered ring compound with high volatility. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently published a report on the occurrence of furan in a large number of thermally processed foods. However, the FDA's analytical method, using standard curve addition, is not suitable for high-throughput routine laboratory operations. We developed a rapid and improved method for determination of furan in foods by headspace GC/MS. Quantification was achieved by using an internal standard… CONTINUE READING
