Determination of 1-phenylazo-2-naphthol (Sudan I) in chilli powder and in chilli-containing food products by GPC clean-up and HPLC with LC/MS confirmation
A simple and rapid method is reported for the routine determination 1-phenylazo-2-naphthol (Sudan I) in chilli powder and in chilli-containing food products. The method involved Soxtec extraction from the products followed by high-pressure gel permeation chromatographic clean-up collecting the appropriate fraction. Analysis of this fraction was by HPLC with UV/VIS detection. The limit of detection was 7 g kg −1 and the limit of quantification was 13 g kg −1 . The identity of Sudan I in food products was established by electrospray LC/MS with MS/MS confirmation. From a small survey of 30 retail samples, 11 samples of crushed chilli, Italian pasta, chilli-snack and vegetable sauce contained levels of Sudan I ranging from 24 to 5591 g kg −1 .
