Method Description

The Determination of Nutritional Elements in Food Products, Dietary Supplements, and Botanicals by Inductively Coupled Plasma - Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES) involves precise analysis of sample solutions in an argon plasma. This method allows for the simultaneous measurement of various nutritional elements, ensuring accurate quantification. ICP-OES is crucial in assessing the elemental composition of diverse products, such as food items and dietary supplements, providing valuable information for quality control, regulatory compliance, and nutritional labeling. Its sensitivity and versatility make ICP-OES a key analytical tool in the food and dietary supplement industries, contributing to the safety and quality of consumer products.
