Peroxides

GOED Maximum allowable limit: 10 meq/kg

Anisidine

GOED Maximum allowable limit: 20 AnisidineDataTestUnitOfMeasure

Test result: 5 AnisidineDataTestUnitOfMeasure

The p-anisidine values are used to measure secondary oxidation or the level of aldehyde production during the processing of oils. Anisidine values reflect how an oil has been handled and stored, where peroxide value measures current oxidation.

GOED Maximum allowable limit: 26 TotoxDataTestUnitOfMeasure

Test result: 10.2 TotoxDataTestUnitOfMeasure

Fish and plant oils begin to oxidize as soon as they are exposed to oxygen, metals, light, and heat. At late stages, oxidation will make the oils smell rancid. In early stages, regardless of the lack of aroma, high levels of oxidation are still harmful.
