Disease relevance of Food Packaging

  • This paper describes the SCF classification system and discusses the rationale behind the SCF approach to toxicity testing and evaluation of food packaging materials, with particular emphasis on the recent change which took place in 1990 when the Committee issued a new set of guidelines [1].

High impact information on Food Packaging

  • Our findings that recycled kitchen rolls contain bisphenol A and other xenoestrogens may apply to other types of recycled paper used for food packaging and emphasize the importance of identifying this and other contaminants in recycled paper in general [2].
  • A variety of food containers, drinking cups and cutlery, fabricated from polystyrene (PS) or polystyrene-related plastic, were analyzed for their styrene monomer content [3].
  • Recent experimental studies in Japan on the evaluation of potential health hazards from phthalate esters used in manufacturing poly (vinyl chloride) as well as several plastics for medical devices and for food containers and packages were introduced [4].
  • As an analytical demonstration the proposed methodology was applied for the determination of the migration levels of the selected plasticizers from a PVC food packaging film into aqueous simulants [5].
  • Bisphenol A (4,4'isopropylidenediphenol: BPA), an endocrine-disrupting chemical, is contained in food-packaging and can-coating agents as well as in dental sealants [6].

Biological context of Food Packaging


Associations of Food Packaging with chemical compounds


Gene context of Food Packaging

  • Migration studies from paper and board food packaging materials. Part 2. Survey for residues of dialkylamino benzophenone UV-cure ink photoinitiators [13].
  • One of the tasks of the Scientific Committee for Food (SCF) is to advise the Commission of the European Communities (CEC) on the safety-in-use of monomers, other starting substances and additives used in food packaging materials [1].
