Organic acids cis-aconitic acid, citric acid, fumaric // acid, mallic acid, quinic acid, succinic acid and tartaric acid were determined // in single liquid chromatographic run. Soluble, insoluble and total oxalates were // determined separately by HPLC method. The organic acids are energy contributing // components, although it varies between the different organic acids. According to // the Codex Alimentarius Commission’s Guidelines for Nutrition Labeling, the energy // conversion factor for organic acids is 13 kJ/g. However, organic acids have not // been included in the total energy of foods given in the IFCT.
