Perox­ide Value of Ex­tracted Fat

Consumer Voice - - Ready-to-eat Extruded Snacks -

De­tec­tion of perox­ide value is ev­i­dence of ran­cid­ity in fat/oils. As per IS 12566: 1989, in ready-to-eat ex­truded snacks the perox­ide value of ex­tracted fat should not be more than 10 meq oxy­gen/kg fat. In the tests we con­ducted, the perox­ide value of ex­tracted fat was nil for all five brands, which means they are fine for con­sump­tion.
