Talc in Olive Oil
Австралийские маслобойни не отстают от испанцев. E553b Talcum

In 2006 over 200 tonnes of talc was imported into Australia, for use by the major commercial olive oil producers during the olive oil extraction process.
Most commercial presses are so called three phase continuous presses that require huge amounts of water to be added to the olive paste during processing.

These producers claim that the addition of talc assists in more efficient removal of the water that is added to the paste during malaxing or kneading.

However, often the talc is not entirely removed during the treatment process and can easily end up as a part of the end product, which is almost always marketed as extra virgin olive oil.

In Mediterranean countries the addition of talc is a common practice. It receives almost no public comment and is often found as a component in olive oil.

Talc is almost impossible to taste, or see with the naked eye.

These so called extra virgin oils are to say the least, adulterated.

Producers who operate two phase presses (mostly boutique operators) where no water is added to the extraction process do not use talc at any stage.

Several studies have established preliminary links between talc and pulmonary issues,[1] lung cancer,[2][3] skin cancer and ovarian cancer.[4] This is a major concern considering talc's widespread commercial and household use. However, no conclusive study has yet been made to determine either the toxicity and/or carcinogenic nature of talc and the long history of safe use suggests that these concerns are unfounded. The heart and lungs (from an older edition of Grays Anatomy) The lung is an organ belonging to the respiratory system and interfacing to the circulatory system of air-breathing vertebrates. ... Lung cancer is a cancer of the lungs characterized by the presence of malignant tumours. ... Skin cancer is a malignant growth on the skin, which can have many causes, including repeated severe sunburn or long-term exposure to the sun. ... Ovarian cancer is a malignant ovarian neoplasm (an abnormal growth located on the ovaries). ...

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers non-asbestiform talc, that is talc which does not contain potentially carcinogenic asbestiform amphibole fibers, to be Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) for use in cosmetics.

Nondisclosure of Product Ingredients
To avoid alarming consumers about the use of toxic tableting or encapsulating agents, most manu-
facturers simply avoid the problem by not listing them on their label.
Flowing agents such as talcum powder, a suspected carcinogen (cancer-causing agent), are used routinely by most other manufacturers as well as polyvinylpyrrolidone,
magnesium stearate (a proven immuno-suppressive
agent), toxic waxes and many other known or suspected carcinogens. It is disappointing to find so many manufacturers who use these toxic agents in their nutritional products, making the choice not to inform their consumers about these hazards.
