In a recently issued draft notification, the FSSAI has fixed Total Polar Compounds (TPCs) for unused veg oils/fats at not more than 15%. And the use of veg oil having TPCs more than 25% is banned for frying.
Same clause will be updated in the Food Safety and Standards Regulations, 2011, in Regulation 2.3, in Sub-regulation 2.3.15, after Clause 7.
Many complaints have been received by the food inspectors regarding the repeated use of cooking oils by FBOs, which lead to this action by the FSSAI.
While streamlining the standards for cooking oils, the regulatory body also observed that the regulations does not include provisions to limit the use of cooking oils. Also, if TPC content in oils will be higher than 25%, then such oils will be deemed as unsafe for human consumption.
The guideline also includes the methods that should be used to dispose the reused oils. Companies like Muenzer Bharat and others will train the FBOs regarding all these regulations that must be followed.
