Carnival – we make jelly doughnuts safe

Carnival is approaching fast, and with the fifth season there is also a lot of feasting. Jelly doughnuts are a traditional staple of carnival. To guarantee that carnival remains fun, bilacon test jelly doughnuts to ensure that the carnival season can be celebrated safely.


Jelly doughnuts may contain unhealthy substances, which are usually formed during the production process:

  • Trans fats can be found naturally in some animal products, or they are produced by hardening fats with a high content of poly-unsaturated fatty acids. An increased consumption promotes the risk of cardiovascular diseases.


  • MOSH (mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons) and MOAH (mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons) are also present in jelly doughnuts. MOH enter foods during the packaging, production, and transportation process. A contamination of food with mineral oils is undesirable.


  • 3-Monochloropropane-1,2-diol (3-MCPD) and glycidyl esters are process impurities that can result from the processing of vegetable fats and oils and are potentially carcinogenic.

So you can enjoy this delicious treat at carnival time without worries, bilacon is your point of contact to ensure that the critical limits set by the EU are not exceeded.


To all carnival revelers we wish a beautiful 5th season!
