|Food, Nutrition and Agriculture - 11- Edible Fats and Oils (FAO - FPND - FAO, 1994)|
|Standards to ensure the authenticity of edible oils and fats|
International standards for vegetable oils are evolving. They provide a valuable internationally accepted database which, apart from being useful for assessment of product quality, is vital for verifying oil authenticity. Clearly, Codex standards will assume increasing significance under the recently concluded GATT agreement; it is therefore incumbent upon Member Governments to seek to ensure that the standards are up to date and accurate to the extent possible.
