|Publication Date:||1 September 2018|
|ICS Code (Organic acids):||71.080.40|
significance And Use:
3.1 This test method is intended for the determination of the neutral fatty matter contained in fats and oils by means of ether extraction.
1.1 This test method covers all degraded glycerides, since they are neutral fats. However, this procedure does not necessarily determine all the mono and diglycerides that may be present in the sample. This is due to the water soluble characteristics of some mono and diglycerides.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
