Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Oils and Fats,

ANNEX

Annex VIII to Regulation (EEC) No 2588/91 is hereby amended by this addition of the following note:

'Note 5: In order to permit clear separation of the peak of trillonlein from the adjacent peaks, crude olive-residue oil should be purified beforehand in accordance with point 6.2 of Annex VII or, alternatively:

200 ìl of undiluted oil are abosorbed in a silica column for liquid-solid extraction (type SEP PAC silica cartridge-waters port. No 51900).

The triglycerides are eluted with 20 ml anhydrous hexane for HPLC.

The eluted product is dried in a nitrogen flow and placed in Isopropanol or acetone (5 ml). 10-20 ìl are injected into HPLC. For these two purification methods, the fatty acid composition of the oil must be checked to ensure that it is the same before and after purification. If it is not the same, the absorbent quality used should be progressively reduced.'.
