Taiwanese Products Found Contain DEHP in Malaysia

Recently Taiwan reported the illegal use of the plasticizer DEHP in clouding agents for use in food which comes to our attention and we worry that any products imported from Taiwan will be containing DEHP.

According to wikipedia, Bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate, commonly abbreviated DEHP, is an organic compound with the formula C6H4(C8H17COO)2. It is sometimes called dioctyl phthalate and abbreviated DOP. It is the most important “phthalate,” being the diester of phthalic acid and the branched-chain 2-ethylhexanol. This colourless viscous liquid is soluble in oil, but not in water. It possesses good plasticizing properties. Being produced on a massive scale by many companies, it has acquired many names and acronyms, including BEHP and di-2-ethyl hexyl phthalate.

The effects of DEHP on living organisms included :

  • Smaller penis size and other feminizing links
  • Obesity
  • Toxicity
  • Cardiotoxicity
