Undesirable compounds in oils and fats: analysis and regulation
Institut des Corps Gras (ITERG), rue Monge, Parc Industriel, 33600 PESSAC ‐‐ France
The aim of this paper is to present, for some undesirable compounds representative of the major origins, a comparison between the efficiency of the analytical methods used (sensitivity, precision) and existing regulations. An idea of the different origins of the presence of undesirable compounds in oils and fats is given. Then a focus is done on guidelines on contaminant analysis provided by European directives or Codex Alimentarius. The reliability of some existing test methods compared to regulations is also examined: lead, hexane, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and pesticide residues.
Key words: Analysis / contaminants / oils and fats / regulation / level of contamination
