In this presentation the advantages offered by NMR spectroscopy to the analysis of marine and other edible oils will be outlined, particularly the ability of this technique to simultaneously detect and monitor the contents of hundreds of molecules simultaneously (different classes of fatty acids, acylglycerols, hydrolysis products, antioxidants such as vitamin E, vitamin A, lipid oxidation products, epoxyacids, cholesterol and health-friendly sterols and stanols, etc.). The applications of NMR-linked multivariate analysis strategies to determine the quality, authenticity and possible health benefits of such oils will also be discussed.
