Food metabolomics for the evaluation of Japanese rice wines using LC-MS/MS

In this study, various types of malted rice sake, made from the same manufacturer are analysed for a total of 97 hydrophilic metabolites (e.g. amino acids and organic acids).

Metabolomic profiling of beer using a triple quadrupole GCMS

In this article, metabolomic profiles of beer were studied and determined using a triple quadrupole GCMS (GCMS-TQ8040) enabling characteristic compounds (e.g. saccharides) to be identified for some types and brands of beer.

Targeted metabolomic profiling of wines by LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS

This article introduces the use of both LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS for targeted metabolomic profiling of wines.

Food metabolomics for the analysis of curry using LC/MS/MS

This application note examines the metabolomic profile of curries prepared at different locations (i.e. 2 different home locations and a cafeteria) and also investigates the metabolomic changes when the curries were left overnight.
