Evaluation of Various Beer Beverages by Metabolome Analysis (GC-MS/MS, LC-MS/MS)

Hydrophilic metabolites in five beer beverages were analyzed using GC-MS/MS and LC-MS/MS, and the database for primary metabolite analysis. As a result of a multivariate analysis (principal component analysis) of the data, it was confirmed that the five samples showed specific clusters in the score plot, and based on the loading plot, sugar, amino acid and other characteristic components with a large contribution to the cluster forms were identified.
