Development of methods for the determination of emulsifiers and polyphosphates in foods
Project Code: A01026
Robust methods are required for the determination of emulsifiers permitted under the Miscellaneous Food Additives Regulations 1995 (as amended). Methods will assist enforcement of these Regulations and facilitate the study of dietary intakes.
Throughout this project two alternative approaches have been considered for the analytical determination of the additive, either a dirct analysis of intact chemical constituentsor an indirect approach where the additive is first hydrolised and the hydrolysis products are used as the analytical indices. A model bread system was considered to be an analytically chalenging matrix and was used for the development of methods for the extraction of these additives.
