The measurement of volatile compounds in food can be critical in understanding the flavour profile of a product and ensuring the quality and authenticity for the consumer. The complexity of the matrix can sometimes present a challenge and can often require considerable sample preparation protocols to enable detection of analytes at low levels. Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry (SIFT-MS) is a real-time volatile organic compounds (VOC) analyser with an ability to detect analytes simultaneously at low concentrations with little or no sample preparation. This application note demonstrates the use of SIFT-MS to compare the volatile profiles of smoked salmon samples and illustrates the potential of this approach for both targeted and untargeted analysis.
