Food Contact Packaging

NCASI staff periodically review the published scientific literature addressing issues related to the presence of contaminants in food contact materials manufactured from wood pulp.  The reviewed publications address issues related to the 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 or identifying and quantifying specific chemicals/chemical classes in food contact materials or food/food simulants.
