The migration of substances from packaging to food is a matter of concern for the food safety authorities. The packaging materials constitute a potential source of contaminants to which the consumer will be exposed through the diet. A huge variety of substances, can be present in the packaging materials and consequently can migrate into the food and could represent a risk for consumer health.

This book provides an overview on the main packaging contaminants including bisphenol A, melamine, phthalates, alternative plasticizers, photoinitiators, perfluorochemicals, saturated and aromatic hydrocarbons (MOSH and MOAH) from mineral oils, other bisphenol related compounds, nanoparticles, primary aromatic amines (PAAs) and non-intentionally added substances. The analytical techniques used for their determination are reviewed.

This book will be of interest to students and researches in universities and research institutions associated with food packaging and in general in the food safety field.
