Other Methods

There is no on-size-fits-all ID method, especially for complex mixtures.  For example, natural sterol compounds are difficult to identify conclusively, and can be confused with anabolic steroids even using chromatography paired with mass spectrometry.  Below is a list of links that offer some further insight on other methods that may be used to identify problematic dietary ingredients:

AFCC for Tribulus terrestris steroidal saponins (A.C. Grace and Flora Research Laboratories)

Polarimetry to determine purity and potential adulteration of chiral substances such as chondroitin sulfate sodium salt and limonene
