Abstract
The need for analytical control of food supplements and “energy“ drinks containing amino acids is huge. In the literature there are describes various analytical techniques for their qualitative and quantitative analysis. Most pre¬ferred methods is HPLC because of its range, accuracy and speed. Despite the wide variety of methods, there isn’t coherent analytical system associated with the standardization of food additives containing amino acids.
