Curr Res Food Sci 2022 8;5:813-822. Epub 2022 May 8.

Zhejiang Provincial Key Laboratory of Health Risk Factors for Seafood, Collaborative Innovation Center of Seafood Deep Processing, College of Food and Pharmacy, Zhejiang Ocean University, Zhoushan, 316022, China.

The large yellow croaker, a species of fish found in the northwestern Pacific, is favored by consumers because of its prevalence in saltwater bodies, golden yellow abdomen, high calcium content, high protein, high fat content, and a flavor that originates from its lipids and volatile components. Volatile organic compounds significantly affect the aroma of food. In this work, electronic nose and headspace gas chromatography-ion mobility spectrometry were applied to analyze the flavor differences in fish oil durations. Read More

Identification of the Maillard reaction intermediates as divalent iron complexes in alanine/glucose/FeCl model system using ESI/qTOF/MS/MS and isotope labelling technique.

Curr Res Food Sci 2021 21;4:287-294. Epub 2021 Apr 21.

Department of Food Science and Agricultural Chemistry, McGill University, 21111 Lakeshore, Ste Anne de Bellevue, Quebec, H9X 3V9, Canada.

Due to their high reactivities and short half-lives, the detection of Maillard reaction intermediates is relatively difficult to achieve in a single analytical run. In this study, the formation of Maillard reaction intermediates from heated alanine/glucose mixtures (110 ​°C for 2 ​h) was investigated through their complexation with divalent iron using electrospray ionization/quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry and isotope labeling techniques. Analysis of the mixtures indicated that this approach allows the simultaneous detection of many important labile and reactive Maillard reaction intermediates along with unreacted alanine and glucose in addition to various other Maillard reaction products, such as glyceraldehyde, erythrose, ribose, acetol, glycolaldehyde, fructosamine, glucosone, osones, deoxyosones, and Amadori products.

Curr Res Food Sci 2020 Nov 28;3:268-274. Epub 2020 Oct 28.

Department of Food Science and Agricultural Chemistry, McGill University, 21111 Lakeshore, Ste Anne de Bellevue, Quebec, H9X 3V9, Canada.

Sugar degradation products generated through thermal treatment of foods are considered the key precursors for various flavor compounds, toxicants and browning, but their high reactivity makes their detection difficult. In this study, a convenient analytical procedure for profiling of various reactive sugar intermediates having enediol or -dicarbonyl moieties through complexation with divalent metal ions combined with electrospray ionization/quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry was developed. Excess divalent iron chloride (FeCl) was added to glucose or U6-[glucose] solutions in methanol either before or after heating at 110 °C for 2 h, and the samples were analyzed by tandem mass spectrometry.
