Carbohydrates are an important component of the diet for both humans and animals. Given the recent scientific, federal and consumer interest in carbohydrates, specifically in added sugars, it is important to establish actual sugar profile and composition in human food and beverages, animal feed, and pet foods. Sugar profile determination in food matrices helps to understand a product’s consistency and reduces vulnerability to food fraud. Nutritional sugar determination requires proper sample preparation, matrix elimination, and optimized separation and detection methods to achieve both precision and accuracy in complex food matrices.

Join us for an informational webcast on sugar testing and learn about key drivers for animal and human sugar measurements. Jeff Horst from Agri-King Inc. will discuss recent acceptance of Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) methods for sugars in animal feed, pet food, and human food that establish the initial necessary steps towards an AOAC-approved method for these challenging matrices. Dr. Hari Narayanan from Metrohm USA will discuss the latest developments in sample preparation that support sugars and fructan analysis in various human food matrices.

 

Key Learning Objectives:

  • New regulations related to sugar analysis in human food, animal feeds, and pet foods
