Annotation -
The course is aimed at the knowledge expansion of the principles and applications of modern methods of sample preparation and instrumental methods in food analysis. The lectures are divided into two parts: 1 Technical: a) sampling and sample preparation, b) separation, spectrometric and electrochemical methods; 2 Application: characterization and analysis of selected food components.

Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

Understand principles of sample preparation methods and their applications in food analysis.

Understand principles of instrumental methods (chromatography, electromigration methods, spectrometric methods) and their applications in food analysis.

Understand characteristics and analysis of peptides, proteins, phenols, flavonoids, organic acids, alkaloids, additives, contaminants and nanoparticles.
