Fermentation processes monitoring for food development and production

This application note will help you explore the use of the Nexera™ Dual Injection System for the simultaneous run of two independent analyses in a single sample injection. Furthermore you will learn how to determine food constituents and evaluate the various stages of fermentation for food development and production.

Food component analysis is necessary in various aspects of food development, production and even nutrition. Food, being a complex matrix, consists of various components such as sugars, proteins, carbohydrates, fat and more. With their different natures and chemical properties, food component analysis can be quite challenging and tedious with the need to select appropriate sample preparation, separation and detection methods for each of these food components.

To accelerate the entire food component analysis, Shimadzu developed the Nexera™ Dual Injection System where a single sample injection can be split into two flows and simultaneously run two independent analyses in a single platform. In this article, this system is applied to monitor the food fermentation process of a yoghurt product. The progress of the fermentation and the optimized conditions are monitored more effectively with the simultaneous analysis of organic acids and sugars. The method showed low carryover and good recovery rate for both organic acids and sugars and proved to be effective for simultaneous multi-component food analysis.
