Scientists develop rapid oil screening method

Inform SmartBrief | Jul 08, 2015

Scientists at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University say they have found a way to quickly identify "gutter oils" -- oils recycled from restaurants and leather processing -- to help keep them out of the food supply. Using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry, the scientists say they can rapidly separate "fake oils" from edible oils. Current methods take longer and require pretreating and separating samples. FoodNavigator-Asia.com (07/06) South China Morning Post (Hong Kong) (free registration) (06/30)
