Carbohydrates, also known as saccharides, are the macronutrients found as sugars, fibers, and starches in food. They are biomolecules made up of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms and commonly have a hydrogen and oxygen ratio of 2:1.
We offer a broad selection of carbohydrate standards ranging from simple to complex carbohydrates for analytical testing, including pharma release testing, pharma method development, and quality control testing of food and beverages. Our standards are available in a variety of quality grades suitable for analysis by chromatographical methods. Our offering of carbohydrate standards includes:
Our offering includes common monosaccharides, such as glucose, fructose, and galactose, as analytical standards or as secondary pharmaceutical standards / certified reference materials.
Our offering of disaccharide standards includes lactose, sucrose, maltitol, maltose, D-(+)-melibiose, palatinose, D-(+)-turanose, D-(+)-cellobiose, and galactinol dihydrate.
We provide standards for several oligosaccharides such as isomaltotriose, 1-kestose, D-(+)-melezitose, nystose, verbascose, D-(+)-raffinose pentahydrate, beta-cyclodextrin, and acarbose.
Our portfolio includes dextran and pullulan standards for GPC or a standard for starch assay kits.
Our range of carbohydrate standards also includes their certified reference material (CRM) solutions for ion chromatography applications.
