Open call for experts and laboratories working  on possible contaminants in olive oils and olive-pomace oils

The IOC Executive Secretariat would like to invite experts and laboratory leaders working on possible contaminants in olive oils and olive-pomace oils to express their interest in participating in data collection and method validation.  The IOC Working Group on the determination of contaminant residues in olive oils and olive-pomace oils is actively carrying out several studies on the following topics:

MOSH (Mineral Oil Saturated Hydrocarbons) and MOAH (Mineral Oil Aromatic Hydrocarbons)

Method of analysis, analytical error (LOQ and LOD)    MOSH-MOAH.AM

Data on the presence of these contaminants in oils, for each commercial category                                                                      MOSH-MOAH.DC

Investigation about the possible cause of contamination and ways of minimising it                                                                      MOSH-MOAH.DC2

3-MCPD (3-monochloropropane-1,2-diol)

Data on the presence of these contaminants in oils, for each commercial category                                                                      3-MCPD.DC

HAPs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons)

Method revision for the determination of HAPs  HAPs.ME

Method validation for specific HAPs    HAPs.ME2

Experts in the sector, especially those with analytical facilities and skilled personnel able to perform the required analyses, are invited to contact the IOC Executive Secretariat. Experts from IOC member and non-member countries are also invited. Please refer to the code reported in the above list when communicating with us about your expression of interest.

A Tuscan PGI oil made by Terre dell’Etruria, a farming cooperative society that has invested all it has on its members, expertly helping and guiding them towards quality and success. The most impressive features of this extra virgin oil, flavour apart, are its remarkable quality/price ratio and extraordinary yield > Luigi Caricato

Ravioli with Garda extra virgin olive oil stuffing and black olive charcoals

Extra Virgin Garda DOP olive oil’s distinctive traits are its naturally delicate flavor and its elegance. At the taste it can be recognized for harmony or its organoleptic notes and for the light and balanced aromas: the scents of fresh grass, aromatic herbs, hay and artichoke, together with the typical almond aftertaste, make it unique.

Very few oil producers run blogs. Turri's, with its minimalistic design, is both simple and elegant. It is also available in English: posts are published at regular intervals and dispatched through newsletters > Luigi Caricato

The fruit of tradition, care and a passion for quality. Our story starts here, in Puglia. The beating heart of the Mediterranean Sea. This is the birthplace of our oil-making art, an art that has always considered olives as a living body. Video Spot Corporate by Masseria di Sant'Eramo
