Halogenated Propane Diols (MCPD)
Implementation phase for automation
Halogenated propane diols are carcinogenic and genotoxic components that are formed as chemical byproducts in food. They are primarily created in foods by protein hydrolysis by adding hydrochloric acid to speed up the reaction of the protein with lipids at high temperatures. Using hydrochloric acid rather than traditional slow fermentation is a far cheaper and much faster method.

Based on our experience with the fatty acid methyl ester robot, our team has co-created a similar solution for the analysis of MCPD and glycidyl esters in edible oils in close collaboration with customers in The Netherlands. Due to the toxic nature of these components, this application has become quite relevant to the edible oils industry. It is expected to become even more important the next couple of years.

Oil and Fat Seminar

The FAME PAL series, developed by SampleQ some years ago, is our proven solution for automatic derivatization of fatty acids to fatty acids methyl esters.

Based on this experience, our team has co-created a similar solution for the analysis of 3-MCPD and glycidyl esters in edible oils in collaboration with our customers in the Netherlands.
