Withdrawn (Edition 1, 2002)


This International Standard specifies a gas chromatographic method using capillary columns for the determination of the content of trans fatty acid isomers of vegetable oils and fats.

The method is specially designed to evaluate, by a single capillary gas chromatographic (GC) procedure, the level of trans isomers as formed during (high temperature) refining, or during hydrogenation of vegetable oils or fats.

The method may also be used to report all other fatty acids (e.g. to obtain the full fatty acid composition and total amounts of saturated fatty acids, mono-unsaturated fatty acids and poly-unsaturated fatty acids) from the same sample and same analysis.
