In this paper a new targeted metabolic profile approach using Orbitrap high resolution mass spectrometry was described. For each foodmatrix various classes of bioactive compounds and some specificmetabolites of interest were selected on the basis of the existing knowledge creating an easy-to-read fingerprinting named “FancyTiles”. The procedure resulted in a plot of semi-quantitative data allowed to highlight for each food the main metabolites related to the biological or sensorial attributes within an educated schema. Results showed that the FancyTile procedure is a useful tool for research programs aiming at improving the health potential of food and ingredients. In this paper the FancyTilewas described and it was successfully applied to verify the differences in themetabolic profile. Olive oils from different cultivars,waste millwaters fromolive grown in different location and artichokes cultivated with different agronomical practices were used as case study.
- virgin olive oil
- cynara-scolymus l.
- performance liquid-chromatography
- artichoke leaf extract
- sesquiterpene lactones
- antioxidant capacity
- sensory properties
