Oleo Test

Cooking Oil Test

OleoTest is a colorimetric assay that determines the total polar compounds in frying oils in 2 minutes. It can be used in many applications including food and beverage processing, restaurants, kitchens, hotels, and catering.


Key Benefits

The easiest to use and most flexible oil test available. Get results in 2 minutes for several types of oil; including sunflower, corn, peanut, palm, coconut and rice bran oil. Simple to read 5-level colorimetric tests that are easy to carry and store. Measures total polar components.

Frying Oil Risk

During the frying process, the fat/oil is exposed to atmospheric oxygen and moisture at high temperatures for a long time. As a result, many chemical reactions take place during frying fat, producing a number of harmful compounds that can increase the risk of several health problems, such as lung or stomach cancer.

Measures Total Polar Compounds

Deep frying foods produces chemical reactions such as hydrolysis, oxidation, and polymerization, which changes the chemical composition of frying oils and release free fatty acids and free radicals that combine into polar compounds containing monoglycerides, diglycerides, and polymeric triglycerides. OleoTest detects these polar compounds, helping you to know when to replace your frying oil.

HACCP Approved

OleoTest is innovative because of its accuracy, simplicity of use and also because the results remain stable for several months, allowing the test itself to be kept as a registry in the scope of HACCP or food safety systems. The quality control of the tests is continuously verified by independent entities.
