Liquid smoke is the name given to flavoring products that claim to enhance food by adding a ‘smoked’ flavor to mimic the traditional smoking process.
Due to the complex nature of liquid smoke, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) issued new guidelines in February 2021 for the analysis of such products prior to authorization. The new guidelines call for full chemical characterization of the primary product, meaning that non-target analysis is required.
In this SelectScience webinar, discover how GC×GC–TOF MS coupled with innovative chemometrics software can provide comprehensive comparison of liquid smoke composition to improve quality control procedures and to accelerate the development of new flavorings.
Key learning objectives
- How GC×GC–BenchTOF2 can gain greater insights into sample composition for robust aroma and flavor profiling
- How Tandem Ionization® can be used to improve confidence in compound identification and enhance non-target workflows
- How smart software workflows can automatically uncover key differences between complex flavor profiles
Who should attend?
- GC(-MS) users who want to enhance their ability to analyze complex samples
- Food, fragrance and flavor scientists interested in how advanced analytical techniques can provide a competitive edge
Presenter: Dr. Laura McGregor (Product Marketing Manager, SepSolve Analytical)
Laura’s background is in analytical forensic science, and her Ph.D. (at the University of Strathclyde, UK) focused on the chemical fingerprinting of environmental contamination using GC×GC-TOF MS. Following roles in application support and product marketing for Markes International’s TOF MS and software portfolios, she joined SepSolve in October 2017, where she continues to apply GC×GC–TOF MS to challenging applications.
