Literature Summaries on Contaminants in Food Contact Materials

NCASI staff periodically review the published scientific literature addressing issues related to the presence of contaminants in food contact materials manufactured from wood pulp.

Reviewed publications address issues related to:

  • Effectiveness of barrier materials for preventing migration of contaminants into food or food simulants
  • Development of methods to identify and quantify chemicals in food contact materials or food/food simulants
  • Identifying and quantifying specific chemicals/chemical classes in FCM or food/food simulants
