Event Title

Migration of Chemical Substances from Food Packaging, Modeling and Simulation of Migration Processes

Session

Food Science and Technology

Description

Food packaging is one of the stages of food production that enables foods to reach consumers safely. For better understanding of food and health connection, it is needed a risk factor evaluation. Migration is an important factor that affects the quality and sustainability of food and also affects human health. Therefore, more research needs to be done on chemicals that cause migration and their effects on human health. Possible chemical migrants include plasticizers, antioxidants, thermal stabilizers, monomers etc. It is legislative document which governs what are specific allowed substances for packaging in food contact, and which determines precisely migration limits. There are described a lot of important methodologies designed for wide limits material, can be performed experimentally, giving lots of data for quantitative evaluation of migration process from package material toward fond. For this study, mathematical modeling of the possible diffusion of chemical migrants from the packaging into the food product was performed and a computer simulation of this process was carried out. By selecting the appropriate packaging material and technologies for different food products shelf life of food is increased and food quality and freshness can be preserved.
