Identification of unknowns in foodstuffs is a major challenge for food companies who need to determine whether an unknown compound may be harmful to consumers. In this application note, we describe a FAMEs analysis of an avocado sample that contained a previously unknown constituent resulting from an unexpected chromatographic peak.
Learn how high resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) and atmospheric pressure chemical ionization following gas chromatography (APGC), the accurate mass of the molecular ion and generated fragments were used to propose an identification of the unknown compound. Other application benefits include:
