Choosing the correct method for Quantifying LC-PUFA in fish oil concentrates and algal oils

Choosing the correct method for Quantifying LC-PUFA in fish oil concentrates and algal oils

4 July 2017

At Vitafoods Europe in May this year, we met a lot of people keen to know the difference between using European Pharmacopoeia (EP) and American Oil Chemist Society methodology (AOCS). As a result, our colleagues, Dr Charlie Scrimgeour, Consultant, and Claire Traynor, Head of Unit, have compiled a white paper that discusses choosing the correct method for Quantifying LC-PUFA in fish oil concentrates and algal oils. This will hopefully address a lot of the confusion surrounding the differences between the two and the apparent discrepancy in results observed.  For more lipid analysis info, please visit www.lipid.co.uk
