Triglyceride profiling of ghee using gas chromatography
Author(s): Tanmay Hazra, Vivek Sharma, Priti Saha and Sumit Arora
Abstract: A systemic study was conducted for analysis of triglyceride profile of ghee using gas chromatography. It was observed that there were 16 major peaks of even carbon number triglycerides, corresponding to triglycerides of 24 to 54 carbon number triglycerides present in both cow or buffalo ghee. In both cow as well as buffalo ghee six triglycerides having carbon numbers (C36, C38, C40, C42, and C50 & C52) were predominant representing about sixty percentage of total triglycerides present in both of the two ghee. Presence of C24 carbon number triglyceride was almost negligible in both cow or buffalo ghee. Smaller carbon number triglycerides like (C26, C28, C30, and C32) found to be very nominal, whereas triglycerides with carbon number C34- C54 were the major triglycerides in cow ghee or buffalo ghee. Small and medium carbon numbers triglycerides (C26 to C38) were higher for buffalo ghee than cow ghee. For cow ghee C40 triglyceride was higher than buffalo ghee. Higher carbon numbers TGs C44-C54 were higher in case of cow ghee as compared to buffalo ghee.
