During food production, contaminants can develop. One example is Acrylamide during the frying of potatoes, but also Esters of 3- and 2-MCPD and glycidyl esters (glycidol) are such harmful substances in our food. They cause tumors and are especially dangerous to children. Generated during the production of vegetable oils, they can be found in these oils and consequently in processed foods containing these oils. Their highest levels are, by far, in palm oil or fat. That is worrying, since it is difficult to evade palm oil in our supermarkets. Difficult, but not impossible, in my opinion. Alarming are the high doses found in baby formula.
