The research of contaminants is part of multiple controls conducted by fat and oil industry to verify the conformity of products placed on the market in relation to regulations as for instance the commission regulation EC no 1881/2006 setting maximum levels for some contaminants in food as lead, some mycotoxins, dioxins, polychlorobiphenyls, benzo[a]pyrene. In the absence of regulation, the detection of contaminants must be addressed in partnership with authorities according to the toxicity of molecules. The controls are not confined to environmental contaminants. They also include compounds that can be formed during the production process of vegetable oils such as esters of 3-monochloropropanediol. This article focuses on recent research analytical development more particularly on those related to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, mineral oils, phthalates and esters of 3-monochloropropanediol.
Key words: vegetable oils / polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons / mineral oil / phthalates / 3-MCPD esters
