n this work an HPLC-DAD determination method for free and total HMF in “dulce de leche” was developed and validated. The separation was carried out using a mobile phase of acetonitrile-water (4.5:95.5, v/v) on Acclaim™120 C18 (4.6 × 150 mm, 5 ?m), at 30 °C and a flow rate of 1 mL/min. The detection was done at 284 nm.The method showed good selectivity and linearity (determination coefficient over 0.999). Low LOD and LOQ values were obtained (19.51 ?g/L and 65.05 ?g/L respectively). Relative standard deviation (RSD) for repeatability and intermediate precision was <4.12 % and <5.98 % respectively. Recovery rates were between 89.04 % and 91.89 %. In addition, the HMF contents in commercial “dulce de leche” from Chile was reported, ranging from 2.33 to 10.31 mg/kg for free HMF and 314.61–464.98 mg/kg for total HMF.
