Analysis of glycerol tri heptanoate (GTH) in category 1 and 2 animal (by) products.


Rendering plants have to identify category 1 and 2 animal (by) products, which are destined for transport, disposal or use in accordance with ABPR/1774. Identification can be done supplementing glycerol tri heptanoate (GTH).CCL Nutricontrol validated and accredited a method of analysis for the determination of GTH according to ISO 17025.
The method and performance characteristics of a collaborative study with the Joint Research Centre (Geel, Belgium) were published in the journal Food Additives and Contaminants.
