Fatty acid profile of food or feed (with fat extraction)

Determination of the fatty acid profile of crude lipid extract, fats, or oils with GC-MS or GC-FID. For other matrices, an additional fee for lipid extraction will be applied.

The measurement includes the determination of the following fatty acids:

  • Butyric acid (C4:0)

  • Caproic acid (C6:0)

  • Caprylic acid (C8:0)

  • Capric acid (C10:0)

  • Undecanoic acid (C11:0)

  • Lauric acid (C12:0)

  • Tridecanoic acid (C13:0)

  • Myristic acid (C14:0)

  • Myristoleic acid (C14:1, n−5)

  • Pentadecanoic acid (C15:0)

  • Pentadecenoic acid (C15:1, n−5)

  • Palmitic acid (C16:0)

  • Palmitoleic acid (C16:1, n−7)

  • Margaric acid (C17:0)

  • Heptadecenic acid (C17:1, n−7)

  • Stearic acid (C18:0)

  • Elaidic acid (C18:1, trans 9)

  • Oleic acid (C18:1, cis 9)

  • Linoelaidic acid (C18:2, trans 9,12)

  • Linoleic acid (C18:2 cis 9,12)

  • gamma-Linolenic acid (C18:3 cis 6,9,12)

  • alpha-Linolenic acid (C18:3 cis 9,12,15)

  • Arachidic acid (C20:0)

  • 11-Eicosenoic acid (C20:1 cis 11)

  • Eicosadienoic acid (C20:2 cis 11,14)

  • Heneicosanoic acid (C21:0)

  • Eicosatrienoic acid (C20:3 cis8,11,14)

  • Arachidonic acid (C20:4 cis 5,8,11,14)

  • Eicosatrienoic acid (C20:3 cis 11,14,17)

  • Behenic acid (C22:0)

  • Erucic acid (C22:1 cis 13)

  • Eicosapentaenoic acid (C20:5 cis 5,8,11,14,17)

  • Docosadienoic acid (C22:2 cis 13,16)

  • Tricosanoic acid (C23:0)

  • Lignoceric acid (C24:0)

  • Nervonic acid (C24:1 cis 15)

  • Cervonic acid (C22:6 cis 4,7,10,13,16,19)
