TOTOX Value and its Relationship with Food Oil Rancidity

By considering both peroxide and anisidine values the total oxidation (TOTOX) value offers a comprehensive assessment of oil stability. When the TOTOX value exceeds certain thresholds, it suggests that the oil has likely turned rancid and is no longer suitable for consumption. Regularly monitoring peroxide and anisidine values with the CDR FoodLab and calculating the total oxidation (TOTOX) value can help ensure that oils remain in optimal condition for culinary use.
