ASMS 2016: Targeting Mass Spectrometry Tools for the Masses
The expanding application range of MS in life sciences, food, energy, and health sciences research was highlighted at this year's ASMS meeting in San Antonio, Texas.
Peanut Allergy Prevention Strategy is Nutritionally Safe
Early-life peanut consumption does not affect duration of breastfeeding or children’s growth and nutrition.
A Future Tool for Medicine, Food Safety
A new type of electronic sensor that might be used to quickly detect and classify bacteria for medical diagnostics and food safety has passed a key hurdle by distinguishing between dead and living bacteria cells.
Local Microbes Can Predict Wine’s Chemical Profile
Regionally distinctive groups of bacteria and fungi, associated with local climate and environmental conditions, may leave a very specific “fingerprint” on a wine’s chemical composition, report University of California, Davis, researchers who collaborated on a new study with two Napa Valley wineries.
What Makes a Good Scientist?
It’s the journey, not just the destination that counts as a scientist when conducting research.
Genetically Engineered Crops Are Safe
Distinction between genetic engineering and conventional plant breeding becoming less clear, says new report on GE crops.
Developing Non-Allergenic 'Super' Peanuts
Scientists from The University of Western Australia have joined a global research team that have identified genes in peanuts that when altered will be able to prevent an allergic response in humans.

Analysis of Fruit Juice Adulterated with Medium Invert Sugar from Beets

Dionex - Part of Thermo Fisher Scientific

The source of sweetener can be other juices or sugar derived from fruits or vegetables. One adulterant currently in use is partially inverted sucrose, wherein about one-half of the sucrose has been hydrolyzed to glucose and fructose. This ratio of approximately 1: 1:2 (glucose: fructose: sucrose) closely matches the ratio found in orange juice.

Recently, investigators using high performance anion exchange chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection (HPAE-PAD) have discovered several components in beet medium invert sugar (BMIS) that are not present in orange juice. Swallow, Low, and Petrus have suggested that a pattern of late-eluting components appearing at about 60 minutes be used to identify adulteration. Tsang and co-workers have used raffinose - a trisaccharide of D-glucose, D-fructose and D-galactose – as a marker for orange juice adulteration. A third method, similar to that of Swallow, et al., uses only one analytical column and also exhibits a pattern of late-eluting components indicative of adulteration by BMIS

Conditions and illustrative chromatograms for each method are included in this application note.
