The demand for coconut oil has taken the ingredients industry by storm. The “miracle” substance is widely used in food, offering health-conscious users a healthy dose of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) compared to the long-chain triglycerides (LCT) that are found in most vegetable oils. MCTs are more easily digested, bringing coconut oil to the forefront of the healthy ingredients trend.

The expressionL CMS coupled with the Atmospheric Solids Analysis Probe (ASAP®) is used to determine purity and detect adulterants in coconut oil. In this application note, pure coconut oil is tested against a sample of coconut oil adulterated with canola oil for comparative data analysis and a fast and easy method for purity analysis.
