Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon In Food
Can the lipid content of fish affect the total petroleum hydrocarbon (tph) readings when using the tph in food: aoac 2006.3 method ?
We are an environmental organisation investigating concerns by residents of fish and other marine life continuously dying on beaches where an oil spill has occurred and was 'cleaned up'. We did tph analysis and found that the fish had concentration ranging from 2000 - 28 000 mg/kg tph and the same for sediment samples. We took this information to our local authorities and they informed us that the tph in food methodology referenced in the horwitz, w. (ed). Official methods of analysis of aoac international, 17th ed. Vol. I and ii. Maryland, usa : aoac international, 2000. "would be inflated by the lipid/oil content naturally occurring in the fish and therefore is unusable as in indicator hydrocarbon pollution or of risk to human health due to consumption.
