Food Contact Materials
Contact with Food
Houshold goods are consumer goods intended for contact with food or already in contact with food. Regulations of the EC framework 1935/2004 apply to these materials and objects. According to this regulation commodity goods with food contact must not release substances into food in an amount which is hazardous to human health or which alter the composition of the food to an unwarranted extent.
Transition of Contaminants
The Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) demonstrated that kitchen ware and crockery made of melamine formaldehyde resin (MF resin) release the monomers melamine and formaldehyde at temperatures above 70 °C. For the safety of your products we check your products for residues of various contaminants. Whether your material releases critical substances is determined with migration tests or saliva/sweat resistance tests. Plasticisers, bisphenols, PAH or heavy metals are hazardous contaminants in food.
Apart from physico-chemical analyses the sensory quality for commodity goods with food contact are of great importance. Regulation 1935/2004 demands that an organoleptic impact on the food by contact materials must be ruled out. This means that these materials must not alter a food – neither its smell nor its taste. Our experienced sensory panel will carry out these tests for you!
