Looking for Carcinogenic Nitrosamine Compounds in Beer

Carcinogen-containing compounds can develop through some manufacturing processes, such as in the malting process for beer. It is critical to analyze the nitrosamine content in any consumed products as well as monitor the final product. Thermal energy analysis (TEA) is able to quickly identify and analyze N-Nitro, N-nitroso, and nitrogen-containing compounds. This article describes the importance of monitoring these compounds.
