e) Even if the counterfeit product had a finely tuned acid value and total fatty acid profile (to pass the USP ID test), adulteration could easily be discovered by comparing the total fatty acid and free fatty acid profiles and by noting the discrepancy between the calculated acid values based on free fatty acid content and the actual acid value measured by titration.
