Fatty Acid/Fatty Acid Methyl Esters (FAME) Analysis

Analysis of Fats (Fatty Acids, FAMEs, and Glycerides)

Determining fats in food for nutritional labeling purposes, or in blood samples for health reasons, is a challenge. Food and blood are both complex matrices that may contain an intricate mixture of saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fatty acids, each with a variety of carbon chain lengths, plus an assortment of mono-, di-, and triglycerides. The information assembled here will help analytical chemists locate appropriate products for the analysis of free fatty acids, fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs), and glycerides, using derivatization, SPE, GC, HPLC, IR, and NMR techniques.
