Simultaneous Analysis of Saccharides and Sweeteners in Yogurt Drink (NH2P-40 2D)

Saccharides and sweeteners in yogurt (drink type) were analyzed using Asahipak NH2P-40 2D, a polymer-based amino column, with LC/MS/MS detection. Alkaline conditions promote the deprotonation of hydroxyl groups at the time of ionization. Therefore, alkaline conditions are suitable for high sensitive detection of substances with hydroxyl groups such as saccharides under the negative mode.
