In the Guidelines on Nutrition Labelling in Japan, amino columns of 4.6mmID x 250mm Length are adopted for the analysis of monosaccharides, disaccharides and sugar alcohols. This chromatogram shows the analysis result of typical sugar alcohol standards using an amino column, Asahipak NH2P-50 4E
. Since the column is polymer-based, it is durable compared with silica-based columns and can be washed by alkali solution. The eluent used is the mixture of water and acetoritrile. The elution volume can be changed by changing the mixing ratio.
