Click HERE for Column Ordering Information.

When commercial Rice Extracts were analyzed, only Vanillic Acid (Peak 1) was found in one out of 3 Extracts and 6′-O-Feruloylsucrose (peak 2) was found in all 3 extracts. The results were confirmed by analyzing spiked Rice Extract samples. The analysis was done in a single run by switching polarity between positive and negative ionization mode.

According to the literature [1], a Rice Extract should contain following compounds: Gallic Acid, Vanillic Acid, p-Coumaric Acid, Ferulic Acid, 3,5 Dimethoxy-4-Hydroxycinnamic Acid, Syringic Acid, Caffeic Acid, and 6′-O-Feruloylsucrose.
