Vitamin analysis is not always straight forward. Vitamins are a very disparate group of chemicals and a thorough knowledge of their chemistry is needed in order to use the correct method for their determination. We are able to analyse for all of the major vitamins using the latest techniques.
Historically B vitamin analysis in foods has been particularly difficult, requiring separate sample preparation and analysis for each one. At Campden BRI, we have developed a new approach, based on liquid chromatography mass spectrometry, to analyse thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid and pyridoxine simultaneously and more quickly - in products as varied as cereals, vegetables, dairy products and snacks. We can look at their stability during processing and through shelf-life - for example, as affected by packaging and storage conditions - as well as for fortification studies, product development and supporting claims.
