There is increasing regulation associated with food packaging and materials that come into contact with the food product during transport and storage.
Food packaging has the potential to contaminate or spoil food as molecules from food packaging can migrate into particular food matrix. This extent to which a substance migrates depends on the nature of the migrant (the chemical), the nature of the material from which it can be released, and the nature of the food with which it comes into contact.
ALS offers overall migration testing to determine the quantity of substance that may migrate from food contact materials to foodstuffs, and specific migration testing to determine the amount of a specific component that migrates from food contact material to the food during contact. Specific migration tests are performed with multiple techniques including ICP-OES, GC-MS and HPLC.
