Mineral oil components such as MOSH (mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons) and MOAH (mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons) can be identified almost everywhere in food and food packaging. They can infiltrate food of both plant and livestock origin in different ways, e.g. through migration. MOSH and MOAH can accumulate in body fat and organs.

As a world-leading manufacturer on analytical instrumentation, Shimadzu provides insights into regulations, technologies, and applications around MOSH/MOAH. During a one-day seminar, international experts from industry and science present their latest findings, solutions, and methods.
