  • Taiwan Rejects Olive Pomace Oil Imports

    Taiwan has refused imports of olive pomace oil and crude grapeseed oil from Europe claiming they have been adulterated with a green colorant, despite objections that such testing can produce false positives.

    In one of the latest twists in an edible oil scandal rocking consumer confidence in Taiwan, the Taiwanese Food and Drug Administration (TFDA) announced on Christmas Day that 8,000 kg of olive pomace oil sent by Spanish producer Vidoria SL had been ordered destroyed or returned because copper chlorophyllin had been detected in it.

    And it is understood that Italian olive pomace oil and grapeseed oil has also recently been rejected for the same reason.
