Launch of accredited analyses on 3-MCPD, 2-MCPD and GE in vegetable oils and fats

As from now on, Primoris is also your partner for high quality and accredited analyses on 3-MCPD, 2-MCPD and glycidyl esters (GE) in vegetable oils and fats.

3-MCPD, 2-MCPD and glycidyl esters (GE) are process contaminants, resulting from high temperature treatment and/or refinement of vegetable fats and oils.

Highest levels of 3-MCPD and related compounds have been found in fats and oils. Other foodstuffs also reported included: foods for infants and small children; composite foods; grains and cereal based products; herbs; condiments; dressings; meat and meat products; potato and potato products; protein and amino acid supplements. 

The presence and risks of 3-MCPD and related compounds has been monitored for quite some time by EFSA. Also, on European level, official legal limits have been set for, amongst others, fatty acid glycidyl esters in vegetable oils and fats (Regulation (EU) 2018/290).
