Rapid assessment of the authenticity of limequat fruit using the electronic nose and gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry
Citrus fruits are very popular food products. There are many species and varieties of them. There are also documented cases of some citrus fruits causing a severe allergic reaction. Some species of the citrus fruits, especially hybrid ones show a reduced allergenic effect due to the lack of seeds. There is a need for rapid methods for evaluation of citrus’ botanical origin. During research, the headspace of three citrus fruits...
The aim of the study was to analyze the volatile fraction of the citrus fruit using an electronic nose device integrated with ultrafast gas chromatography. The subjects were Citrus aurantifolia, Fortunella margarita Swingle and Citrus × floridana. The chromatographic data obtained were analyzed by means of chemometric methods: PCA and SQC. On the basis of the charts obtained, it is possible to distinguish the fruits tested on the...
