  1. The assay is based on the titration of fatty acids liberated in the following reactions:

Triglyceride+3 H2O Glycerol+3 Fatty acid
  ( Titration)
Fatty acid+NaOH Na–Fatty acid+H2O
Unit definition
  1. One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme which liberates 1 μmole of fatty acid per minute at 37℃ under the conditions specified in the assay procedure.

  1. Substrate suspension (Olive oil and Adekatol SO–120) 50 g of Olive oil: (Japanese Pharmacopoeia grade) and 50 g of Adekatol SO–120 are suspended with 150 ml of distilled water.

Enzyme solution
  1. Accurately weigh about 10 mg of the sample and add enzyme dilution buffer to make a total of 50 ml.
    Dilute it with enzyme dilution buffer to adjust the concentration to within 2–4 U/ml.

  1. Pipette accurately 5 ml of substrate suspension and 2 ml of distilled water into a test tube (24 mm i.d. × 200 mmH) and mix to start the preincubation at 37℃.
  1. After 10 min, add 0.5 ml of enzyme solution and mix to start the reaction.
    In the case of a test blank, add 0.5 ml of enzyme dilution buffer in place of enzyme solution.
  2. After 20 min, stop the reaction with 16 ml of reaction stopper.
  3. Add 3 drops of indicator and titrate the whole mixture with under nitrogen gas bubbling.
