Abstract

A paper chromatographic method has been developed to detect and determine ester gum present in ready-to-serve beverages and their concentrates, utilizing Halphan-Hicks reaction, where ester gum reacts with bromine and phenol, giving a violet spot on the chromatostrip. Ester gum has been estimated by measuring the absorbance at 245 nm. Other substitutes of brominated vegetable oils (i.e., glycerol mono stearate and polysaccharide gums) have also been detected.
