Chemical Migration and Food Contact Materials by Karen A. Barnes, C. Richard Sinclair, David H. Watson

By Karen A. Barnes, C. Richard Sinclair, David H. Watson

Foodstuff and drinks might be very competitive chemical milieu and will have interaction strongly with fabrics that they contact. each time nutrients is positioned in touch with one other substance, there's a hazard that chemical compounds from the touch fabric could migrate into the nutrients. those chemical substances might be damaging if ingested in huge amounts, or impart a taint or odour to the foodstuff, negatively affecting meals caliber. meals packaging is the obvious instance of a meals touch fabric. because the call for for pre-packaged meals raises, so may well the aptitude danger to shoppers from the discharge of chemical compounds into the meals product. Chemical Migration and foodstuff touch fabrics studies the most recent controls and learn during this box and the way they are often used to make sure that nutrients is fit for human consumption. half one discusses the rules and quality controls of chemical migration into nutrients. half 2 studies the newest advancements in parts equivalent to publicity estimation and research of meals touch fabrics. the ultimate half comprises particular chapters on significant meals touch fabrics and packaging varieties, resembling recycled plastics, metals, paper and board, multi-layer packaging and clever packaging. With its special editors and foreign group of authors, Chemical Migration and foodstuff touch fabrics is an important reference for scientists and pros in foodstuff packaging manufacture and foodstuff processing, in addition to all these occupied with assessing the security of meals.

As many of the chemicals involved in the production of FCSs are likely to be of wide interest, based on other uses and/ or subject to another regulatory authority, these studies are often available in the open literature.

Thus, they are generally not included in FCN letters. As noted above, the notifier is held to the specifications and use conditions identified in the FCN. Accordingly, changes in the manufacturing process that result in new impurity profiles may require communication with the FDA and, if warranted, new FCN submissions. Use limitations may include limits on the level of the FCS in the manufacture of the food contact article, as well as ‘food types’ and time–temperature conditions under which articles manufactured from the substances may be used.

Through its evaluation of numerous submissions that the FDA has processed, FDA has determined that some polymeric articles, manufactured from certain monomers, are used only in such niche or specialty applications that they are not expected to see wide use in food packaging. As such, they usually require minimal data to ensure safety at their respective exposures. This approach to safety assessment allows the FDA not only to fine tune the safety assessment for the particular notification in question, but also to reassess the safety assessment of FCSs and their constituents on a continuing basis.
