Interpretive Summary: Detailed step-by-step instructions on how to perform the pH differential method (method for determining the content of anthocyanin present) in samples.
Technical Abstract: Detailed protocol for performing the pH differential method, which is currently undergoing AOAC's official methods of analysis validation program. Once the collaborative study manuscript is approved, the method will be published in the AOAC International book of official methods of analysis . This method is applicable to the determination of monomeric anthocyanins in fruit juices, beverages, natural colorants, and wines within the range of 20-3000 mg/L as cyanidin-3-glucoside equivalents.
