[en] In this study, inulooligosaccharides (F-n-type inulin) resulting from the endo-inulinase hydrolysis of globe artichoke inulin were purified and characterized. The aim was to produce F-n oligomer standards with the intention of identifying them in the complex inulin chromatogram. Inulin was extracted from globe artichoke and presented a high average degree of polymerization (DP) of about 80 as determined by high-performance anion exchange chromatography coupled with pulsed amperometric detection (HPAEC-PAD). This inulin was hydrolyzed by a commercial endo-inulinase yielding a product with a very high F-n/GF(n), molecule ratio, thus limiting the interference of GF(n) during the purification process. High performance size exclusion chromatography was used to individually isolate and collect each retention peak corresponding to a specific oligomer. The purity of these fractions was checked by HPAEC-PAD and showed that relatively pure molecules were produced. Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry allowed the molecular weight determination of these purified oligomers and ascertained their DP as F-2, F-3 and F-4. These F2-4 standards were used with glucose, fructose, sucrose and GF(2-4) (commercially available) to spike commercial oligofructose products in order to determine the elution profile in the HPAEC-PAD chromatogram.
