1 Fat Determination Study - Hydrotherm vs. AOAC 922.06

2 Nutrient used as an energy source 1 g = 9 calories (38 kilojoules) Referred to as a lipid

3 Importance of Fat Importance of Fat Nutrition Appearance Texture Flavor

4 Fat Determination Fat Determination FDA mandate for food label Total Fat, Saturated Fat, Trans Fat, Cholesterol Good and Bad fat

5 Fat Extraction Fat Extraction Extractable fat = free fat Bound fat needs to be extracted Methods to measure Total Fat (free + bound) Weibull-Stoldt AOAC 922.06

6 Calculating Total Fat Content Sum Parameter Sample Matrix Fatty Acid Spectrum

7 Study Background Fat extraction of 21 different products Traditional AOAC 922.06 vs. Hydrotherm/Weibull-Stoldt Food and Feed samples tested Over 1,000 data points collected

8 Test Equipment Traditional AOAC 922.06 Weibull-Stoldt

9 Study Results Chip Samples Test Data Soup & Sauce Test Data Meat Test Data Link

10 Benefits of Weibull-Stoldt /Hydrotherm Method Cost savings Time savings Reproducible Results Improved precision High through-put Universal No fume hood required

11 Observations Overall Testing Ease Cost Savings Significant Time Savings Safety Advantages

12 Conclusions Weibull-Stoldt/Hydrotherm exceeds AOAC standards 9 of the 21 products had higher fat recoveries Significant time savings are 7 minutes per sample 22% cost reduction per sample The elimination of flammable hazardous waste allows the Hydrotherm….to be greener and environmentally friendly.
