Analytical Solutions for the Detection
of Fatty Acids and FAMEs

Determining the fatty acid composition of a food product can be a challenge as samples can contain a complex mixture of saturated, unsaturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fatty acids, each with a variety of chain lengths. Sigma-Aldrich offers a wide array of specialized products and application data for the analysis of either free fatty acids or fatty acid methyl esters.
