Title: METHOD FOR DETECTING BOAR TAINT
Abstract:
A method for detecting boar taint in a fat sample is provided. The method includes extracting boar taint compounds from the fat sample to obtain a boar taint extract which includes indole components and androstenone. The method also includes derivatizing the indole components such that the derivatized indole components have a lower volatility than the indole components. The method also includes desorbing the derivatized indole components and the androstenone by Laser Diode Thermal Desorption (LDTD), and ionizing the desorbed analytes. The content of boar taint compounds in the fat sample can then be determined by subjecting the ionized analytes to mass spectrometry.
