Animal and vegetable fats and oils - Gas chromatography of fatty acid methyl esters - Part 4: Determination by capillary gas chromatography (ISO 12966-4:2015)
|Publication Date:||1 November 2015|
|ICS Code (Animal and vegetable fats and oils):||67.200.10|
This part of ISO 12966 specifies a method for the determination
of fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs) derived by transesterification
or esterification from fats, oils, and fatty acids by capillary gas
chromatography (GLC). Fatty acid methyl esters from C8 to C24 can
be separated using this part of ISO 12966 including saturated fatty
acid methyl esters, cis- and trans-monounsaturate
The method is applicable to crude, refined, partially hydrogenated, or fully hydrogenated fats, oils, and fatty acids derived from animal and vegetable sources.
This method is not suitable for the analysis of dairy, ruminant fats and oils, or products supplemented with conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). Milk and milk products (or fat coming from milk and milk products) are excluded from the scope of this part of ISO 12966.
This part of ISO 12966 is not applicable to di-, tri-, polymerized and oxidized fatty acids, and fats and oils.
