Food analysis - Determination of furan in coffee and coffee products by headspace gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (HS GC-MS)

Status: Valid

This European Standard specifies a method for the determination of furan in coffee and coffee products with headspace-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (HS-GC-MS), see [1] and [2]. Coffee products in the scope of this method are extracts which have been spray-dried, agglomerated or freeze-dried. The method has been validated in an interlaboratory study via the analysis of naturally contaminated samples of spray-dried coffee, freeze-dried coffee and ground roasted coffee ranging from 264 µg/kg to 2 840 µg/kg.
