Simultaneous analysis of vitamin D and K in processed food products via ultra high- performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC)

This study highlights a simplified extraction and method development of Ultra High-Performance Liquid Chromatography for simultaneous determination of vitamin D and K in selected processed food products. Simultaneous analysis of vitamin D and K was achieved via gradient elution of methanol with ultra-pure water (95:5–100:0–95:5), at programmed flow rate of (1.0–0.2–1.0 mL/min) for left pump and constant 1 mL/min for right pump within 25 min on HPLC Dionex Ultimate 3000 Series system using two Dionex Acclaim Polar Advantage II C18 columns at 30 °C and acquisition wavelength of 265 nm. The limits of detection and quantification ranged between 0.05 and 0.12 µg/mL and 0.16–0.41 µg/mL; for both vitamins. The method showed good linearity (R2: 0.996–0.999) and high accuracy (85.35–106.36%) for both vitamin D and K. Recovery above 70% was achieved for vitamin D, whereas lower recovery of 60–70% was obtained for vitamin K. The proposed analytical and extraction procedure was advantageous for sample purification and improved detection of trace vitamin levels from selected cereal and flour products.
