A series of Trans Fat standards was purchased from AOCS. The ability of 1H and 13C NMR to predict Trans Fat Content as well as
Saturated, Poly-unsaturated, and Mono-unsaturated Fat Content
The data of the samples is presented in the table below:
PLS regression techniques were used to correlate 1H and 13C NMR spectral variation to the unsaturation level and type of unsaturation of the samples.
Processed 13C data is shown below:
1H NMR data is shown below:
The following correlations were obtained from the 13C NMR data.
