This book discusses the current research on monochloropropanediol (MCPD) and glycidyl esters in edible oils. These potentially harmful contaminants are formed during the industrial processing of food oils during deodorization. This book serves as a single point of reference for the significant research related to these contaminants, covering the mechanisms for their formation, strategies for decreasing their concentrations, and current information on their toxicological properties.
