Desmet Ballestra will participate at the Food Safety Forum 

The Food Safety Forum is dedicated to recent issues with food oil contaminants, present or formed during the processing of oils and fats.

The discovery of the formation and presence of 2 and 3-MCPD esters and Glycidyl esters in vegetable oils, in particularly in palm oil, has triggered a chain reaction in the vegetable oil production and food oil processing industry to tackle this new challenging problem before consumers are getting too concerned.

A whole range of measures from the oil crop to the final refined oil use, are already taken or under way to reduce and limit as much as possible the presence and formation of these minor components.

The aim of the Food Safety Forum is to address this new challenge and show what is already being done today and what is to be expected in near future. Experts from various domains, will explain their view on the matter, be it from official side, industrial producers and processors as well from technological and analytical point of view. 

On 14 September at 16h45, Dr Marc Kellens, Global technical Director, Desmet Ballestra Group will present following lecture: 
Current and future solutions to mitigate 2/3 MCPD & GE in oil refining and modification while preserving the overall organoleptic and nutritional quality of the oil
