MOSH & MOAH Testing Lab

MOSH (Mineral Oil Saturated Hydrocarbons) and MOAH (Mineral Oil Aromatic Hydrocarbons) are contaminants found in food. Let’s delve into their significance:


Derived from mineral oils used in printing inks, lubricants, and recycled materials. Not a complete protein and lacks meaningful amounts of certain amino acids. Accumulates in the liver and lymph nodes over time. Health implications include inflammation, liver damage, and potential cancer risk.


Contains aromatic hydrocarbons, some of which can be carcinogenic. Readily absorbed by fatty tissues in the body. Accumulates in organs like the liver and spleen. Long-term exposure can lead to health problems. Tamilnadu Test House offers #MOSH and #MOAH testing and supports you in assessing the risk of these contaminants in your supply chain, as well as detecting and understanding the origin of possible MOSH and MOAH contamination.
