High-Pressure Liquid Chromatographic Determination of Carbohydrates in Food Products: Evaluation of Method, J.W. DeVries, J.C. Heroff, and D.C.Egberg, J. Assoc. Off. Anal. Chem. 62 p1292 (1979)
This method directly determines the amounts of fructose, galactose, glucose, sucrose, maltose, and lactose. The sugars are extracted and cleaned-up; thereafter, the appropriate dilution is quantitated using High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC).
Sugar alcohols co-elute/interfere with simple sugars (fructose, galactose, glucose, sucrose, maltose, lactose). If your sample contains sugar alcohols and you need to determine total sugar, Sugar Alcohol Screen Test (Gas Chromatograph) will need to be requested in addition to this test. The simple sugar(s) experiencing interference will be reported using the Sugar Alcohol Screen Test.
Total Sugars will not be listed on the Final Report for samples containing sugar alcohols. To calculate total sugar, the simple sugars (fructose, galactose, glucose, sucrose, maltose, and lactose) reported from this method and the Sugar Alcohol Screen Test will need to be added manually upon receipt of the Final Report.
Information Required by Submitter:
Please supply an estimate of the sugar and salt levels, if available. Please let us know if your sample contains any added or naturally occurring sugar alcohols.
