MCPD and Glycidyl Esters in Food Products

Following the discovery of fatty acid esters of the carcinogens 3-monochloropropanediol (3-MCPD) and glycidol in refined vegetable oils, the European branch of the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) held a workshop on “MCPD and Glycidyl Esters in Food Products” in Brussels, Belgium on 9 and 10 November 2011. Its purpose was to give an update on progress since the previous workshop on “3-MCPD Esters in Food Products” held in 2009. The event was attended by 67 participants from industry, research and government organisations. The meeting was chaired by Prof. Alfonso Lampen and co-chaired by Prof. Gerhard Eisenbrand.
