Additional information

As a result of the hazard assessment it can be concluded that the test substance (Glycerides, C16-C18 mono-, di- and tri-, hydrogenated, citrates, potassium salts; CAS 91744-38-6) does not meet the criteria for classification as dangerous or to be considered as PBT/vPvB.

Conclusion on classification

The test substance (Glycerides, C16-C18 mono-, di- and tri-, hydrogenated, citrates, potassium salts; CAS 91744-38-6) is not classified for the environment.

The substance is readily biodegradable and is of a low potential for bioaccumulation. Acute toxicity values are available for all three trophic levels. Due to the low water solubility of the test item Water Accommodated Fractions (WAFs) were prepared for testing. No adverse effects were observed in any of the aquatic toxicity tests at the maximum loading level of 100 mg/l confirming that the EL/LL50 are >100 mg/l and the NOELR are 100 mg/l. In addition, triglycerides are widely used as food ingredients and do not present a hazard to humans or animals. Based on this information, classification for environmental hazards is not warranted.
