Abstract

An attempt was made to analyze preservatives in flavor-containing curry and tomato ketchup without interference due to their of flavor components. Samples were steam-distillated and extracted with ether. Sorbic acid, benzoic acid, dehydroacetic acid and salicylic acid were analyzed by GC with capillary column. Benzoic acid and dehydroacetic acid in curry were interfered by flavor components, but there was no interference in case of tomato ketchup. Samples were pretreated with Sep-Pak $C_{18}$ cartridge and analyzed with HPLC to avoid any interference due to flavor components. The recoveries by HPLC were higher than those by GC. Recoveries of sorbic acid, benzoic acid and salicylic acid from curry were 79.9%, 71.2% and 64.4%, respectively. Recoveries of sorbic acid, benzoic acid and salicylic acid from tomato ketchup were 83.4%, 87.8% and 77.7%, respectively.
