Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the levels of nine biogenic amines in two types of Chinese rice wine (semi-dry and semi-sweet) from the Shaoxing region. Thirty-nine samples from different manufacturers were analyzed by reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography and ultraviolet detection after pre-column derivatization with benzoyl chloride. Serotonin and tyramine were the most prevalent amines (100%) followed by histamine, cadaverine and putrescine (95.2-88.1%). Spermine, spermidine, 2-phenylethylamine and tryptamine were not detected in any sample. The most prominent biogenic amine was serotonin followed by putrescine, tyramine, cadaverine and histamine, their mean conte..
