Foods containing glycerides of fatty acids are classified as edible fats and oils. They are plant, animal (including milk), or marine in origin. They may contain trace amounts of other lipids like phosphatides, unsaponifiable constituents, and free fatty acids found naturally in fat or oil. Fats of animal origin must be obtained from animals that were in good health at the time of slaughter and fit for human consumption, as determined by a competent authority recognised by national legislation. Fats and oils that have been physically or chemically modified, such as fractionation, inter-esterification, or hydrogenation, are included.
