A survey of chloropropanols in soy sauce and some selected foods in China is reported. Thirty-seven traditionally brewed soy sauce samples contained 3-MCPD below the EC maximum limit (ML) of 0.02 mg kg−1. All soy sauce samples (629) from retailers contained levels of 3-MCPD ranging between <0.005 (LOQ) and 189 mg kg−1, and only 12.2% had levels in excess of the Chinese ML of 1.0 mg kg−1 for acid hydrolyzed vegetable protein (acid HVP). This indicates that the necessary processing changes have… 
3-MCPD in food other than soy sauce or hydrolysed vegetable protein (HVP)
This review gives an overview of current knowledge about 3-monochloropropane-1,2-diol (3-MCPD) formation and detection and provides an up-to-date list of available analytical methods and to highlight the differences among these techniques.

Experimental exposure to 3-monochloropropane-1,2-diol from the pre-puberty causes damage in sperm production and motility in adulthood
Results show that 3-MCPD-exposure of rats from prepuberty might cause alterations in spermatogenesis and sperm maturation, similarly to exposure in adulthood.


[Survey of 3-monochloropropane-1,2-diol in soy sauce and similar products].
3-MCPD was undetectable with a detection limit of 0.1 mg/kg in 15 of the 30 samples analyzed in the survey, with a further 4 samples containing very low levels of between 0.01 and 0.02mg/kg.
