As taurine is a very important compound involved in a large number of metabolic processes, it is naturally present in the mammal tissues and is often deliberately added in some foods as a fortifying component. A detailed knowledge of taurine metabolic roles in biological systems can be obtained only if a sensitive, reliable and rapid analytical method is available. This article describes the successful application of high-performance anion-exchange chromatography coupled with integrated pulsed amperometric detection (HPAEC-IPAD) for taurine determination in egg white and yolk samples, as well extracts of human serum and urine.

Abstract

As taurine is a very important compound involved in a large number of metabolic processes, it is naturally present in the mammal tissues and is often deliberately added in some foods as a fortifying component. A detailed knowledge of taurine metabolic roles in biological systems can be obtained only if a sensitive, reliable and rapid analytical method is available. This article describes the successful application of high-performance anion-exchange chromatography coupled with integrated pulsed amperometric detection (HPAEC-IPAD) for taurine determination in egg white and yolk samples, as well extracts of human serum and urine. Applications are shown for determination of taurine in soft drinks and pharmaceutical preparations where the taurine content was evaluated by standard additions. These results were achieved without prior derivatization of taurine.
