Research and Markets: Processing Contaminants in Edible Oils: MCPD and Glycidyl Esters
DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/brz2h2/processing) has announced the addition of AOCS Press's new book "Processing Contaminants in Edible Oils: MCPD and Glycidyl Esters" to their offering.
“Processing Contaminants in Edible Oils: MCPD and Glycidyl Esters”
This book discusses the current research on monochloropropanediol (MCPD) and glycidyl esters in edible oils. These potentially harmful contaminants are formed during the industrial processing of food oils during deodorization. The mechanisms of formation for these contaminants, as well as research identifying possible precursor molecules are reviewed.
Strategies which have been used successfully to decrease the concentrations of these contaminants in edible oils are discussed, including the removal of precursor molecules before processing, modifications of deodorization protocol, and approaches for the removal of these contaminants after the completion of processing. Analytical strategies for accurate detection and quantitation of MCPD and glycidyl esters are covered, along with current information on their toxicological properties.
This book serves as a single point of reference for the significant research related to these contaminants.
Key Topics Covered:
Chapter 1 Formation Mechanisms
Chapter 2 Mitigation of MCPD and Glycidyl Esters in Edible Oils
Chapter 3 Indirect Detection Techniques for MCPD Esters and Glycidyl Esters
Chapter 4 Direct Detection Techniques for Glycidyl Esters
Chapter 5 Direct Detection Techniques for MCPD Esters
Chapter 6 Toxicological Properties of Glycidyl Esters
Chapter 7 Toxicological Properties of MCPD Fatty Acid Esters
