Three shipments of olive oil from Spain and Italy have been denied entry into Taiwan after the oil was found to contain the unauthorized coloring agent copper chlorophyllin during customs inspections, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said yesterday.

The largest shipment was of 6,000kg of olive pomace oil from the Spanish brand Vidoria.

The other two were 2,160kg of Santagata olive pomace oil and 54.96kg of Castello extra virgin olive oil, both from Italy.

Olive pomace oil is a cheaper form of olive oil pressed from the residue left after producing virgin olive oil.
