Chemical migration from food contact materials – such as packaging, containers, or preparatory equipment – into food goods represents an ongoing concern for suppliers and manufacturers across the world. The European Union (EU) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have established mandatory regulations for chemical testing of food contact materials. They have also prepared inventories of approved food contact substances (FCS) to accelerate premarket notifications and eliminate known toxic elements from production lines.
The use of proprietary chemicals in food contact materials is increasingly common, as manufacturers look for cheaper and more effective solutions for food packaging and preparation. However, findings of inadvertent contamination from toxic elements in food contact materials have brought novel chemistries into increasing scrutiny in both mainstream news and the academic literature.
Jordi Labs is the foremost providers of analytical chemistry services in the US. We can support you in addressing your food contact substance concerns, from the research and development (R&D) stage to achieving end-product market compliance. With a suite of advanced chemical testing tools and methodologies, we can perform accurate quantitative analysis of your raw materials or product to identify elements at extremely low limits of detection. This serves as the foundation of our toxicological evaluations.
We build from a sound basis of analytical science to develop robust toxicology reports that can help you optimize your production line and improve safety measures. Jordi Labs can also reinforce your submissions for Food Contact Notifications and Generally Recognised as Safe (GRAS) evaluations, to guarantee regulatory compliance.
