MCPD and Glycidyl Esters: Pivotal role of analytics
by Quentin Basle

2- and 3-Monochloropropanediol (MCPD) a glycidyl esters are process contaminants generated during oil refining. As they exhibit potential health concerns, it is key to ensure reliable and robust determination of 2- and 3-MCPD esters and glycidyl esters in order to mitigate these process contaminants in food. In this article, a review of the different available methods for their analysis in oils and infant formula will be discussed.
