Overview

Ethylene oxide (also known as Oxirane) can be used as a fumigant to control fungi and bacteria growth in dry food products (e.g. seeds, herbs and spices). Ethylene oxide undergoes various reactions with the food matrix leading to formation of 2-chloroethanol.

The use of plant protection products containing ethylene oxide is prohibited in the EU as it is classed as a Category 2 carcinogen and mutagen. The Maximum Residue Level for ethylene oxide is defined as the sum of ethylene oxide and 2-chloroethanol and it is set at 0.05 mg/kg (ethylene oxide sum) for oil seeds.

Parameters Tested

The analytical method used for analysis of ethylene oxide and 2-chloroethanol is based on a method published by the EU reference Lab with QuEChERS extraction followed by determination using GC-MS/MS.
