When commercial Rice Extracts were analyzed, only 6’-O-Feruloylsucrose at 3.01 minutes (Peak not shown for the clarity of the Chromatogram) was found in this particular Rice Extract Sample. Next, the Sample was spiked with the Standards according to the literature referenced below [1].

This Method is an excellent choice to use for this analysis of these Phenolic Compounds.
