The glaring absence in this study that there was no inclusion of the Defoamer or Antifoaming chemicals adding to frying oils in the US and other region states.
This explains the difference in results with the Mediterranean Regions where these chemicals are typically not added.
The reuse of frying oils would not be possible without the addition of these harmful and indigestible chemicals.
