Nutritional (other than carbohydrates, fats, proteins)

In addition to the major nutritional food components (carbohydrates, fats, and proteins), several minor nutritional components are also of great interest to food analysts. Areas of interest include:
  • Nutraceuticals/antioxidants (polyphenolics, catechins, flavonoids, natural compounds, saponins/ginsenoside, and phytoestrogens)
  • Vitamins, co-factors, and enzymes
  • Nucleotides and nucleosides
  • Organic acids
  • Minerals (calcium, iron, sodium, potassium, etc.)
