Increasing use of separation technology in food analytics will create new revenue pockets


Application of chromatography as a separation technique is increasingly utilized in the food sector in the recent past. Several chromatography techniques such as adsorption and reversed-phase thin-layer chromatography and HPLC are used in to separate additives and for a quantitative determination of a number of substances in food products. It is used in a wide number of applications, such as detection of aflatoxins in food products; analysis of amino acid; vitamin separations; profiling various food components; analysis of colorants and residues; triglyceride determination; sugar content analysis, and determination of various other organic compounds.

Resin-based chromatography techniques also used for separating dairy substances. It is used in the separation of lactose from milk, separation of glucose and galactose and purification of galacto-oligosaccharides. Sugar processing also finds applications of chromatography resins. To maintain safety and nutritional quality of food, many countries have implied a number of regulations that limits acceptable levels for chemical additives, residues and contaminants in food products. Some regulations require food packaging providers to list ingredients relating to nutritional content, such as unsaturated and saturated fat. Resin-based chromatography techniques are used successfully to analyze the nutritional constents of food in the recent past.

In 2012, about 22.3% of the total analytical instrumentation in the food industry was captured by separation technologies. Chromatography is one of the major separation techniques which is increasingly used in the field of nutrition chemistry and nutraceuticals. Increasing use of additives in a food product is coming as a daunting analytical challenge. HPLC is used as a powerfull analytical tool for separation of such molecules from food substances.
