Determination of Choline in Infant Formula and Adult Nutritionals Using Ion Chromatography: AOAC First Action Official Method Performance
New infant formulas and adult nutritional dietary supplements continue to be introduced, placing new demands on the methods used to detect and quantify the key components that affect product efficacy and safety.
Trace levels of iodide are necessary for normal physical and mental development; however, excess iodide can lead to thyroid disorders. Within the dairy industry, iodophors are used as disinfectants, which can also lead to increased iodide consumption by the public.
Choline is a water-soluble quaternary amine essential to methyl metabolism, transmembrane signaling, and normal brain development. Choline is present in many foods and also exists in esterified and bound forms.
Breast milk is the primary source of nutrition for newborns before they are able to eat and digest other foods, so there is a close correlation between breast milk quality and infant health.
