High quality Standards for Food Safety

In recent years, there has been increasing interest in 3-MCPD fatty acid esters in food analysis. These esters are formed
during the production and heating of oils and fats. They are considered harmful at high levels of consumption.
3-MCPD is a known carcinogen found as a heat-induced contaminant in many different types of fat-containing
foodstuffs. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has defined a limit of 2μg/kg body weight as a tolerable daily
intake (TDI).
