Opening Remarks, Executive Director of CPOPC – 3rd Technical Working Group on 3-MCPDE and GE

The reduction of 3-MCPD esters and glycidyl esters (GE) is a high priority for the oils and fats industry. The European Union (EU) had set maximum limits for GE. Next, the EU is proposing a regulation on 3-MCPDE. Split-levels simply result in discrimination between different oils.
