For the Love of Food! Food Safety and the Analysis of MCPD in Edible Oils

Duration: 90 minutes

This webinar will clarify the regulatory status and analytical methods applied for the analysis of monochloropropane diol (MCPD) and glycidol contaminants in edible oils.
Join us to learn how oil refining and food processing methods can be modified to minimise the in-situ generation of these contaminants in order to meet the regulatory requirements.
While GCMS is the standard instrumentation to monitor the levels of these contaminants, multiple sample preparation steps must be adhered to in the various AOCS official methods.
Find out how GERSTEL and Shimadzu come together to deliver the best automated solution for your food safety analysis needs. For the love of food!

Learning Objectives:

  • An update on the regulatory status and analytical methods for MCPD analysis
  • Modified oil refining and food processing can minimise these contaminants
  • GCMS is the standard instrumentation to monitor the levels of these process contaminants
  • Sample preparation based on the different AOCS methods can be fully automated
