Analysis of 3-monochloropropanediol, 3-MCPD fatty acid ester and Glycidyl Ester in Infant Formula based on AOAC Official Methods 2018.12

Monochloropropanediols (MCPDs) are unintentionally produced from edible oils and infant formula. MCPDs are generated from digesting vegetable protein with hydrochloric acid and be formed by heating process. It has been reported long term intake of MCPDs affects negative impacts to the kidney and androgenesis. MCPDs fatty acid esters, glycidol fatty acid esters are also monitored in purified edible oils. In animal experiments, most of MCPDs fatty acid esters and glycidol fatty acid esters are decomposed in the intestinal tract and absorbed as MCPDs. EFSA investigated and evaluated the intake of MCPDs, MCPDs fatty acid esters and glycidol fatty acid esters. EFSA concluded it needs to be researched in detail, but efforts to reduce them are required. We reported GCMS quantification method of 3-MCPD, 3-MCPD fatty acid esters and glycidol fatty acid esters.
