A Concerted Procedure for the Generation, Concentration, Fractionation, and Sensory Evaluation of Maillard Reaction Products

  • T. H. Parliment


The purpose of this work is to present a unified procedure for studying Maillard reaction products. Aqueous solutions of reactants are prepared and buffered as appropriate. The samples are passed through a continuous flow reactor at an elevated temperature for a known residence time. The cooled product is collected in a solvent extraction separatory cylinder and extracted with a solvent such as diethyl ether. The aqueous phase may be pH adjusted prior to extraction to permit selective removal or enhancement of various classes of organic compounds. The product is separated by gas chromatography, detected by mass spectrometry and evaluated by olfactometric procedures.
