Regulatory Capabilities

The Dallas Group of America, Inc. provides high quality specialty chemicals to demanding industries such as the food, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries.

The Dallas Group is committed to providing safe and effective products to its customers that meet or exceed recognized regulatory standards. Our main products, MAGNESOL® and DALSORB® are the world’s leading frying oil filtration medium for restaurant and industrial use. Studies show that filtering oil with MAGNESOL® and DALSORB® actually improves the nutritional value of frying oil compared to unfiltered used frying oil and oil filtered through conventional diatomaceous earth filter aids.[1]

To ensure that our products meet the various regulatory requirements around the world and to navigate the often confusing and complex regulatory environment, The Dallas Group retains the legal services of Keller & Heckman, a globally recognized law firm specializing in food regulatory matters, with offices in Brussels, Shanghai, Washington DC, and San Francisco. Keller & Heckman provides expert counsel related to food safety & regulatory issues regarding the use of Dallas Group products and providing our customers with the advice and assurance that our products are not only safe, but also meet appropriate legal requirements. This is just one of the many value added services that distinguishes The Dallas Group from the competition.[2]
