Development and release of aroma compounds from food products is a dynamic process. Conventional analytical technologies are poorly suited to studying changes on a timescale of seconds to minutes. This webinar introduced Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry (SIFT-MS) — a recent introduction to the flavor chemist’s and new product developer’s analytical tool kit. SIFT-MS analyses chemically diverse flavor compounds in real-time, including amines, organosulfur compounds, and volatile fatty acids.
In this webinar, we described the benefits of SIFT-MS for flavor analysis using various application examples:
- Flavor development during processing of tomatoes, mangoes and cocoa
- Enzymatic flavor generation in fresh tomatoes and strawberries
- In vivo assessment of “garlic breath” deodorization.
Learning Objectives of this Webinar:
- The fundamentals of the selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) technique, including its ability to selectively and comprehensively analyse samples in one, simple procedure.
- How real-time analysis using SIFT-MS can provide great insight into flavour generation and flavour release.
- How direct analysis can simplify workflow and speed new product development.
Through rapid, sensitive, and comprehensive analysis, SIFT-MS provides new solutions to challenges facing various food R&D and processing applications:
- Direct analysis of flavor release
- Simple, fast freshness and quality screening
- Process optimization and monitoring
- Rapid new product R&D
Whether you are looking to address issues that traditional techniques cannot resolve, accelerate your R&D, or improve processes and reduce costs, SIFT-MS delivers.
