[en] Fluorescence spectroscopy is a powerful method for protein analysis. Its sensitivity and selectivity allow its use
for the detection of blood meal and blood products. This study proposes a novel approach for the detection of
hemoglobin in animal feed by synchronous fluorescence spectroscopy (SFS). The objective was to develop a fast
and easy method to detect hemoglobin powder and blood meal.
Analyses were carried out on standard reference material (hemoglobin and albumin) in order to optimize SFS
method conditions for hemoglobin detection. The method was then applied to protein extracts of commercial
feed material and compound feed. The results showed that SFS spectra of blood meal and blood products (he-
moglobin powder and plasma powder) could be used to characterize hemoglobin. Principal component analysis
(PCA) applied to area-normalized SFS spectra of artificially adulterated samples made it possible to define a limit
of detection of hemoglobin powder or blood meal of 0.5–1% depending on the feed material. The projection in
the PCA graphs of SFS spectra of real commercial compound feeds known to contain or to be free from blood-
derived products showed that it was possible to discriminate samples according to the presence of hemoglobin.
These results confirmed that SFS is a promising screening method for the detection of hemoglobin in animal
